Exchange: I’d Do It Again

I have lived in 4 different countries and travelled to countless others all over the world. Yet going on exchange is such a unique experience, nothing like I’ve ever experienced before. I went to Montreal, Canada. I had actually been to Canada four times previously, but this was my first time living there. Perhaps the […]

Canada, eh? – By Sophie Seuk

How does one go about encapsulating and condensing an incredible 6-month journey into a mere 500 words? Even worse, how does one begin to do so without touching upon such overused clichés as – ‘it was the best experience of my life’, and ‘do it, you won’t regret it’? Inevitably, one cannot do such a thing with ease. Much […]

Exchange at McGill University – By Justin Low

This year, McGill University was voted the best student city in the entirety of North-America, and my experience while on exchange here has been telling of this status. From the get go, events around the campus kept me occupied and gave me a chance to meet new people. Frosh week (or as we would call […]

Exchange to University of Alberta, Canada – By Georgia Weinert

My exchange started terribly. On arriving at campus, I was alone, hopelessly lost and realized that my taxi had driven off with my laptop. On top of this, I had recently been rejected from my accommodation preference and was certain I was not going to like where I was placed. I was pessimistic, wondering why […]

HEC Montreal Exchange- by Gabriel Calilung

I am a 3rd year student majoring in Corporate Finance and International Business who went on exchange at HEC Montreal, Canada. My primary goal during the exchange was to find out if I can live independently while simultaneously trying to improve my communication skills. The program was one of the best and scariest experience of […]

Exchange Journal- Georgina Bolzon

Day One – Canadian Exchange 2015 Wow, this land is absolutely beautiful. Yep, I’m talking about Alberta, Canada, the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Minus obvious differences and the extremely different climates, the city reminds me a little of Adelaide; the Bow river flows through the city, much like the river Torrens; the streets are […]

“And how do you like Canada, eh?” – My experiences so far in Guelph – by Padraig Fyfe

Sitting awkwardly alone on a bench in Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, I was still not sure what to expect from my semester abroad. Even though anyone who has ever studied abroad will wax lyrical about how much they enjoyed the experience, it’s impossible to not worry about such a long commitment. But what if it […]

Managing homesickness at the University of Calgary – by Keegan Bull

When I decided to go on exchange I was eager to test myself and enjoy my experience in a foreign country, thinking little of the possible hardships I may experience while there. I expected to feel some degree of discomfort being so far away from home for the first time but I hadn’t quite grasped […]

Exchange to McMaster University – by Sophie Kedzior

Before I embarked on my travel to Canada for McMaster University’s Winter term I was warned by many about how cold the weather could get. Nothing could have prepared me for the first few minutes out in the fresh Canadian air or the view of frozen lakes and snow during my travel to Hamilton, Ontario. […]

The end of a short but impressive Fall at McGill University – by Clairissa Hewitt

I am having difficulty attempting to open this blog with a description of the sense of impending panic an exchange student feels as the end of their semester abroad approaches… In a series of four months I had managed to become part of a previously unfamiliar community to the extent that the thought of leaving […]
