Coping with Culture Shock by Elly Stretton

I chose to study in the UK partly because I thought there wouldn’t be much culture shock. After all, we shared a common history, language and culture. It’s not until I arrived in Leeds, however, that I realised we are more different than originally thought. University life is completely different to back home – there […]

Humans of Global Learning – Emma Williams, University of Leeds

INTERVIEW BY CHELSEA ALLEN Emma describes the university life in England as quite different to Adelaide. “The thing that probably took the longest to get used to was the grading system. It’s not harsher, just different. So like, a 70 is the equivalent of a High Distinction here, and so when lecturers would say that […]

Exchange at the University of Leeds – By Kelvin Dean

Travelling to the UK, I had already set myself the goal of ingratiating into the British culture as part of my semester abroad.

Exchange at the University of Leeds – By Alexandra Craddock

Nine times. That’s how many times I’ve had to hang up on my grandparents for ringing in the middle of a lecture. Nine times, I have had to explain the concept of time zones. Although the family back home in Adelaide may not have adjusted, I am happy to report that I’ve finally gotten into […]

The Beginning of My Exchange – by Connor Deegan

When I walked out of Leeds airport I was greeted by drizzle and the sight of my own breath hovering in front of my face. This was despite the fact that summer had ended just days earlier and it was the middle of the afternoon. I am lucky enough to have one of my best […]

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. When I arrived it was snowing, which was exciting, as I had never seen snow, but it was also freezing cold.  Leeds […]

Exchange to the University of Leeds – by Sam Fotheringham

My decision to go on exchange was made over a year and a half ago and it has turned about to be one of the greatest choices of my life. I arrived in Leeds in early September 2014 to deserted student accommodation with absolutely no friends at all. Four months later at the end of […]

Exchange to the University of Leeds – by Ashlee Ferencz

In August 2014, I departed Adelaide to commence my six month exchange at The University of Leeds, UK. Before leaving, I hoped I would return having seen more of the world and perhaps having made more friends. Now that I am half way through my six month journey, I can certainly say that I am […]
