Overall Experience
I learned how to become more independent and not rely on advisors or others to help me on my work or projects but I still think it was worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I gained an understanding of environmental activism, new friendships, an enriched sense of place, and an opportunity to live as an adult - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I grew as an individual. People from the program was different from my friends I have at school and I had to adapt. Studying abroad in Australia, especially with this program was so worthwhile. I have memories from my group that I will treasure until the day I die and the personal changes are forever. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
Past Review Loved It
I loved my time abroad, I made amazing life long friends on the program, developed my passion for environmental work, learned a lot about myself and what I want to do with my future, saw some beautiful places, and got to live on the beach for a month. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Yes, very worthwhile - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I loved learning about sustainability, I loved Australia, I loved our group. It was a risk for me doing this program because I was an art major with only one previous environmental science class (I am now majoring in both art and environmental science), not particularly interested in camping, but I wanted something different out... - Bard College View Entire Review
Past Review
The academic content covered in the program was not quite what I was expecting or hoping for but what I learned from our outings and from talking to people made the trip worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Yes, I learned a lot about climate activism through my own research and the coursework and that is invaluable. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned more about what I care about, and what else is going on in the world that matters - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about Australian history and culture. The program focused on environmental action and was very personal and encouraging. Unfortunately, being an environmental studies major, I didn't feel like I was learning a lot of new information. The independent research project was challenging and empowering. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review Lifechanging
I am a changed person. I have more confidence, I'm happier, I'm more outgoing, and I feel liberated. I loved my program. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned about myself, my place in a natural and cultural context, and I learned what I want to do with the rest of my life. This is an inspiring program and it changes people's lives. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with SIT: Byron Bay - Sustainability and Environmental Action
Australia is very similar to the United States. There is still materialism, consumerism, capitalist markets and so on. Their histories are very similar also, with the English exploring the land, chasing off or socially integrating the Indigenous, as well as changing the landscape. So by learning more about the way Australia came... - Austin College View Entire Review
Past Review
My study abroad experience was absolutely worthwhile. I gained a love of travel, and an appreciation for new experiences, and a new way of looking at learning. No matter what program you decide to do, or where you decide to go, you should definitely study abroad - it is an experience you'll never forget! - Tufts University View Entire Review
