Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Work is much more on the individual. In the Art School the classes would give you one or two assignments in the beginning of the semester and have you work on them until the end. It is not a school to overwhelm you with prompts but instead they try and develop your working method as an aspiring artist.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Super Helpful, Easy-going, and friendly. The International program really tried to helpo you become comfortable and introduce you to the culture. The Art School Administration really worked with the international students to make sure they were taking classes that worked for them and that they enjoyed.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Nothing is too far of a walk in Hobart, the best suburbs to find housing though would be Sandybay, or Battery point, the are closest to both the main campus and the Arts campus.

* Food:

Spanish and Italian food arent very popular in the restaraunts around the city but they have great Indian, Thai, and Japanese places. AND THE CAFE ARE AMAZING! (def check out Machine as well as Jackman and McCross). i dont know to much about the food campus though

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Must See: Great Ocean Road. its not as popular if a trip but def the most amazing (Main Land)

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

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