Asat studied at the University of Mannheim in Semester 1, 2017 at part of his Bachelor of Finance.   I can’t believe it took my fourth year of university to finally go on exchange, even when I had planning on going on exchange since my first year of uni. I was always hesitant about going […]

Visit to Rothenburg – by Lauren Copland

“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.” – Gustave Flaubert Flying for 19 hours and travelling 15,000km has brought me here, here to Germany, to Mannheim, and to the history that my heart so longed to see.

Before even realizing it, it is already the middle part of the semester. Looking back, I can still remember the complex feelings I had when I first arrived into Germany as an exchange student. Germany was the first non-English speaking country I have ever lived in, coming here was both equally exciting and terrifying at […]

University of Mannheim Exchange- by Emma-Luise Zirkel

As expected it did take sometime to adapt to life in a city where I did not know anyone or was familiar with my surroundings.

Studying Abroad at European Business School – by Anastasia Gravas

I knew I always wanted to live abroad so choosing to go on exchange was the perfect opportunity. Arriving in Oestrich Winkel was somewhat of a culture shock. In comparison to Adelaide it was completely different. It is a small, quaint, peaceful town located on the Rhine River but also surrounded by vineyards and beautiful […]

Semester Exchange to the Technical University of Munich – by Patrick Philbey

Going on exchange was the best choice I’ve made during my studies at Uni of Adelaide. In the middle of 2013, I made a reasonably uninformed decision about what country to choose as my top choice for an exchange. I chose Germany, mainly because I considered going to an English speaking country to be too […]
