Post-exchange reflections – by Ruby Wake

Leaving home for Maastricht, I was ambivalent. Since beginning university, I had told myself I’d go on an exchange….but after moving out of home at the end of first year, and traveling a little, I hadn’t managed to save enough money until my fifth year, when I was 23.

Semester Exchange at University College, Maastricht – by Mia Dalcollo

I attended the University College Maastricht in Maastricht, The Netherlands for the first half of 2014. Maastricht is a beautiful city and the Dutch people are incredibly welcoming and friendly. I felt Maastricht was a perfect fit for someone coming to Adelaide, as it was big enough to have everything you need (and more) but […]
