Exchange at the University of Exeter – By Ella Price

I began my year long exchange at Exeter university in mid September of this year. It’s safe to say I’ve absolutely fallen in love with the place. I left Adelaide at the start of July, however to travel for 10 weeks before arriving, which has so far been a major highlight and I’m really glad […]

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 […]

“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 […]

Exchange to the University of Edinburgh – by Nick Dorsch

In the unlikely event of anyone reading this, the take-home message is very simple: go on exchange. If you’re not already planning one, apply. You’re not going to regret it, you’re going to have some of the best times of your life. Do it. By the first night of my exchange in Edinburgh, I thought […]

The beginning of my exchange experience at the University of Nottingham, UK – by Sophia Sweet

The first week of my exchange program at the University of Nottingham was filled with excitement, enthusiasm and not as much partying as expected. Being all of 22 years old can make for a vastly different exchange experience in comparison to those who are fresh out of school (freshers…). Freshers’ week began on Monday 22nd […]

Exchange to the University of Exeter – by Daniel O’Loughlin

To say that the 24-hour international flight to London was daunting is an understatement. Here I was, a desert rat from Alice Springs who had never flown for more than the two hours it takes to get from Central Australia to Adelaide. The shape of my backpack was more a lumpy-Ninja-Turtle-shell than the streamlined cylindrical […]

Exchange to the University of Strasbourg – by Adeodatus McCormack

Finding out that your student housing is only 20 minutes from the German border. Then finding out that there is a bus that goes to and from Germany half-hourly because people do their grocery shopping there as it is cheaper than in France. Learning all the French vocabulary needed to study geology. Watching Cavani score […]

World Cup Final at the Free University of Berlin – by Brennan McDonald

If I’ve learnt one thing during my exchange here in Berlin it is this: Doesn’t matter how often you travel, as long as you keep traveling you’ll find new experiences. Germany is basically a second home to me this being the fifth time I’ve been over here for an extended period. I’ve had many great […]
