From Kangaroos and Koalas to Fjords and Forests – by Hilary D’Angelo

Hilary D’Angelo attended the University of Oslo in Semester 2, 2017 as part of her double degree in Media and Law.  There is nothing quite like the Norwegian sky in early winter. It’s the palest blue, completely cloudless, and almost blinding amidst the freezing weather and blankets of ice and snow beneath. Calm, captivating, beautiful, […]

Coming Back to Reality – Asat Mahmutov

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 […]

Exchange to the University of Leeds – by Alice McKeough

In Semester 1, 2015, I travelled to Leeds to undertake a study abroad program at the University there. Although apprehensive, I was looking forward to experiencing winter and studying in the United Kingdom.

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.

Phrases like “best time of your life,” “most incredible experience ever” and “unbelievable” are used frequently. Turns out, this is done for good reason. The opportunities to live somewhere else in the world, meet a bunch of […]
