How I learned to love learning again – by Rachael Ingleton

Amid the Kodak moments and memories you’ll tell your kids about, there is a part to exchange that in a sense is at the very heart of it: studying abroad.

All Roads Lead to Edinburgh – by Rachael Ingleton

Arriving in Southampton – By Claire Hale

I’m sorry Adelaide: I think I took the good weather with me! While everyone back home has been drenched in continual storms; we have had minimal rain here in the UK and I’ve had constant access to electricity.

Exchange to Lund University – by Katherine O’Connell

IKEA, meatballs, ABBA, snow. A few years ago, these are the images that came to my mind when I heard the word ‘Sweden’.
