A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Griffith University
January 06, 2014 Time Of My Life!
I learned a lot about Australians and their culture. I learned a lot about myself and how to try all sorts of new experiences. It was one of the best decisions of my life. - DePaul University View Entire Review
My experience was definitely worthwhile. Stepping out of your comfort zone and being somewhere alone will definitely teach you a lot about yourself, your life and your culture. - Marietta College View Entire Review
I learned more about myself and stepping out of the comfort zone to try new things. I also was made aware of how the rest of the country views America and I learned about what was going on in other countries. It was well worthwhile. - Stonehill College View Entire Review
I gained the ability to live on my own and discover things on my own. I had never booked/flown/traveled by myself and I had to do that multiple times. - Stonehill College View Entire Review
Studying abroad was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It was great learning about the different aspects of Australian culture, as well as meeting people from all over the world! Australia is a wonderful country with a lot to offer. The Gold Coast has all of the fantastic aspects of city life, as well as the laid back f... - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review
Living in a different culture opened my eyes to how other people live their lives. The Gold Coast is very community oriented and always has soo many activities/markets going on. I loved experiencing those types of events. I became a lot more independent and open minded while abroad. It was awesome exploring some of the most beau... - West Virginia University View Entire Review

I feel that I am a much more open minded, well rounded person overall. This experience helped me to find out more about myself and about other people and other places all over the world. I can't wait to travel more! - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
I enjoyed pretty much every second of my program. Besides the high cost of living, everything else was wonderful. If you get the opportunity to partake in such an experience, I would absolutely recommend Gold Coast. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review

I learned a lot about myself. I gained some awesome friends that I would of never been able to meet if I did not go through TEAN. While in Australia I learned so many cool things that I probably wouldn't of done while in the US like scuba diving and surfing. - Nichols College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network: Gold Coast - Griffith University
I learned lots of different things from being abroad ranging from big things like culture differences and universal words/actions and foods to little things such as sharing food and taking public transportation to class. - Marietta College View Entire Review
I gained a different perspective of the United States, especially watching another countries point of view on the 2012 Presidential Election and London Olympics. I added to my sense of independence while being on the complete opposite side of the world. Completely worthwhile. - Framingham State College View Entire Review
I gained so much from studying abroad. I am a different person after this experience, in a very good way. I've made unbelievable friends and memories that I will always have with me. I plan to visit Australia again, when before it seemed like it was too far to ever come here. Applying and preparing for it was a lot of work, but ... - Saint Anselm College View Entire Review
Yes! I experienced a new way of life and met a lot of new people. The setting is beautiful and the beaches provide a great activity and way to meet Australians. The University is very welcoming of study abroad students and everyone was really friendly and helpful. I definitely plan on going back to Australia! - University of Virginia View Entire Review

About

As one of TEAN Study Australia’s newest partner institutions, students are quickly figuring out what the fuss about Griffith University's Gold Coast campus is all about. Set amongst native bushland, and with a student population of 16,500, the university offers students the opportunity to seamlessly integrate the beauty of the Gold Coast with a wide choice of course offerings. The program features Study Australia premier housing one block from the beach or an option to live in fully-furnished on-campus apartments. Participants may find themselves face-to-face with an elephant during the mid-semester excursion to Thailand or shooting through whitewater rapids on the stunning South Island of New Zealand. Griffith University participants also enjoy access to an on-site Resident Director and an exciting 6-day Orientation Excursion in Cairns seeing the Great Barrier Reef.
