Overall Experience
I made a lot of friends from Australia that I will keep for a lifetime and that is priceless to me. I also got to experience nature so amazing and foreign to me that I will remember for a lifetime. - Trinity University View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I learned a lot about myself and grew emotionally. I learned that I love the excitement and unknown experience studying abroad brings and expect to travel more - Trinity University View Entire Review

I learned a lot about living on my own and taking extreme responsibility of my life. I learned time management and money management. It was definitely worthwhile. I wish I could have stayed longer. - Griffith University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Arcadia: Gold Coast - Griffith University
Studying abroad was the best thing I've ever done. I've lived in another country for a year before but this time it was different. I've definitely grown as a person and learned a ton about myself and the world. You get to see your own country from a different country's perspective and learn about the world from a different view.... - Bryant University View Entire Review
