Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

The housing was the worst part of my experience. I did not know I would be put with females and other from around the world who spoke different languages.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Just spending time with Australians and visiting spots that are not in tourist books.

Very safe. Sydney was filled with outgoing people and i felt crime was non existent.

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? Eveyrthing is much more expensive in Australia due to the high minimum wage.
