Overall Experience
new culture, new people, it is worthwhile even though I couldn't make that much of friends :) - University of Canberra View Entire Review
I learned about the world as a whole, I learned about myself as a person, and how people can be so similar, despite being worlds apart. I don't believe I can define all of the things I took away from this, but I can say it will forever define me. - University of North Carolina - Wilmington View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself from being away from home. I learned how to live in a different culture and feel uncomfortable in many situations but I overcame it all. My study abroad experience was indeed worthwhile. - University of Northern Colorado View Entire Review
Totally!! I recommend it to everyone. It makes you grow, learn about other cultures, countries, people and yourself. - Universidad Iberoamericana View Entire Review
I learned how to be on my own a lot more and I learned more about myself as a person. For instance, I learned that I am not really a big fan of drinking a lot. Like, while I was there I did have a few beers here and there, but while I was there, I found out that the most fun times I ever had were when I was with good friends jus... - University of Northern Colorado View Entire Review

I gained heaps of new friends and learned to step outside my comfort zone. It was the best decision of my life and I wouldn't change any of it for the world! - University of Central Florida View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself, Australia, and the world in general while on exchange and traveling. Everyone was soo amazing, fun and supportive. I was able to pushed myself out of my comfort zone in so many ways. I experienced countless new experiences and made some of the best friends (and traveling companions) of my life! I ... - University of Guelph - Outbound View Entire Review

To be more independent Going on trips and visit different parts of Australia are the most worthwhile - Hong Kong Institute of Education View Entire Review
I learned so much more about myself than I thought I would. The biggest thing I'll remember is that I can be happy on my own and without the approval of others. You meet so many different types while abroad and it's okay to not necessarily like each and every one of them, but you still need to realize how to get along with them. - University of Northern Colorado View Entire Review
It definitely was worth it. I have never been to Australia, it is a great country, different culture yet similar at the same time. Time differences within the country, huge land, so many ethnicities, land of aboriginals, kangaroos, deadliest animals, landscapes are amazing and people are so nice and entertaining. I think it ... - University of Canberra View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with University of Canberra: Canberra - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
It is hard to say in such a short space how amazing this year has been. It has been the best decision of my life, and has changed me in so many ways. I have loved being here (and as I write this I still have four months left). Being able to combine studying with travelling across Australia, as well as embracing the local cultur... - University of Salford View Entire Review
I learned to live by myself, take care of my stuff and also travel. It's the first time I'm really by myself and it helped me to get skills and also know my capabilities. View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. I got to see the world from a different perspective. - University of Canberra View Entire Review
September 30, 2014 Best Experience Of My Ilfe
Definitely was worthwhile. I learned many things about being independant and about different parts of the world and their lifestyle through interacting with other exchange students. Changed my life, giving me many friends all over the world - University of Canberra View Entire Review
Every minute of it was worth the cost and time away from my family. The friendships I made will never be broken and I can't wait to start traveling again. - Western Carolina University View Entire Review

About

Study Abroad or Exchange gives you the opportunity to attend the University of Canberra (UC) for one or two semesters while gaining credit and increasing the value of your degree. Study Abroad and Exchange students do not receive an award from UC but receive credit from their home institution for studies successfully completed at UC.

Program Highlights:


  • Living on campus at the University of Canberra (UC) means living just footsteps away from the resident kangaroos

  • UC offers hands on, practical learning and offers you a choice of over 3,000 classes to choose from

  • We are a world-ranked university in the TOP 5% of the QS World University Rankings 2013-2014 

  • Form lasting friendships with students from all over the world! 

  • The University’s semester dates tend to line up with well with the Northern Hemisphere University calendar, meaning you can study abroad and have that summer job or internship you want without compromise. 

  • Canberra’s low unemployment rate means a much better chance of landing a job than in most other Australian cities. Many of our students work on campus or just off campus in one of the many cafes and shops in the area. 

  • Live in Australia's National Capital, named Australia's most livable city, 2014!

  • We offer full support through our Study Abroad Office, loads of free (or cost price) trips and activities, plus guaranteed on campus housing for all Study Abroad & Exchange students.
