Overall Experience
I learned about so many different cultures. I was able to not only meet Australians, but many international students from Norway, Italy, and other countries that I still keep in touch with. I gained a passion for traveling and also learned that I can be independent. - Stonehill College View Entire Review

I learned how to be independent, but also utilize the resources that I have. I learned when to ask for help and not be afraid to say you don't know about something. It was definitely worthwhile because you have to be vulnerable and take chances to ever learn or gain anything worth having! - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
I wholeheartedly believe that every student should experience studying abroad at least once in their life because of the TEAN program. I gained a new type of independence and confidence that my home university could have never have taught me. - Hope College View Entire Review
I learned what was important to me and how to prioritize better things in my life. I learned how to not be as hard on myself and enjoy life more and worry less about things that I can not control - Furman University View Entire Review
Past Review Take Me Back
It was the best experience of my life. I always knew I wanted to study abroad, but it was more than I expected. It allowed me to grow up and learn away from any familiarity. I had to learn how to save money and spend it wisely, how to learn from a new university with different expectations, how to ask for help, and how to handle... - Western Washington University View Entire Review
I learned that stepping out your comfort zone will make you a better person. The experience was worthwhile because it gave me the ability to learn about another culture other than my own. I learned so much about people. I also learned that there is such thing as peace. Being back home in New York City and back at school in Conne... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Going to Australia with The Education Abroad Network was the most amazing and best experience I have ever chosen in my life. Throughout the experience of going abroad I became more independent and confident. I learned so much about my culture and myself as well as other cultures. I met people from all over the world and travele... - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
During my study abroad experience I learned how to live and adapt in a brand new environment. I gained lifelong friends and memories that will stick with me forever. This was without a doubt worthwhile. When people ask me for stories it's difficult to choose just one. Everyday was an adventure and I wish it wasn't over. - The University of Queensland View Entire Review
It was the best decision I have ever made. I learned so much about myself, other cultures, and about life. It has made me a better person today and has prepared me for many more adventures. - Mount Ida College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Education Abroad Network: Brisbane - University of Queensland
My experience abroad has changed me in so many good ways. My cultural awareness is much greater and I have such an appreciation for cultures now it's unbelievable. I have the travel bug now and I just want to travel everywhere and see everything that I can. The people I met made my experience unforgettable. From my roommates, t... - James Madison University View Entire Review
Past Review Uni Life
Traveling anywhere gives you a cultural experience, shows you how other people live, learn, and interact. Sometime you find something new you love and sometimes you just realize what you have at home. Either way you gain experience that cannot be taught in a book or a lecture. Being in a foreign country is an experience in itsel... - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
This trip was very worthwhile. This trip allowed me to experience a month of on the go immersive learning while meeting some of the best people I have met in my life. - University of Central Florida View Entire Review

I learned how to be independent and to cooperate with others because everyone is working with different schedules. It was difficult at first, but once you find a routine, then it is much easier and the time will just fly by! - Stonehill College View Entire Review
I learned a ton while I was abroad. I became a lot more independent and overall grew a lot as a person. - University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point View Entire Review
Gained invaluable intercultural skills and a new sense of independence. - Elmhurst College View Entire Review
I learned so much about Australian culture and my own American culture while abroad, and coming home. I also gained a great amount of self-awareness and learned how to live independently in a city and navigate public transportation. Studying abroad helped me gain confidence, self-understanding, and gave me the travel bug. I love... - Stonehill College View Entire Review
Yes, studying abroad was absolutely worthwhile. I learned how to understand other cultures better. Furthermore, I did so many amazing things in Australia that I still can't believe I did. - Concordia University - Wisconsin View Entire Review
I loved the experience of being tossed into a new environment and school and allowed to live like an adult and do what I want. The apartment was a great setup, my roommates were awesome, and the university was rigorous and challenging. I learned how mature I can be, reaffirmed my beliefs in certain aspects of myself and the worl... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Going to Australia has probably been one of the best experiences of my life. From learning a new culture firsthand; understanding science, nutrition, and government policy with an Australian perspective; and learning the high's and low's of becoming a certified barista, I never in my life thought I would have this knowledge of a... - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and my personality. One thing I discovered is that no matter how different someone might seem to you when you first meet them, you can have a lot of things in common with them. Some of my closest friends while abroad were people I probably would not have approached back home. - Purdue University View Entire Review
I learned about people from all over the world and how their lives differ from mine in the United States. Studying and living abroad opened my eyes to various world issues and made me a much more independent and confident person. This experience was absolutely worthwhile and I would do it again in a heartbeat! - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
Study Abroad was the best experience of my life. Like I said, I'm applying to do my Master's at UQ because I enjoyed the area that much. I am planning to study law there and live there for a few years after. Brisbane felt like home. - Colby-Sawyer College View Entire Review


With its relaxed vibe and a meandering river, Brisbane is home to the University of Queensland, a comprehensive university with a plethora of opportunities for study and recreation. Participants can take advantage of the city’s ideal location with outdoor pursuits, like weekend trips to North Stradbroke Island or Fraser Island. The program features TEAN off-campus housing in an ideal location in downtown Brisbane or students can choose instead to enjoy apartment-living in the student-friendly suburb of St. Lucia. With an on-site Resident Director, optional excursions to exotic Thailand or New Zealand's South Island, and a lovely city to call home, UQ might just be the perfect fit!
