experienced what a big university is like - Wellesley College View Entire Review
November 15, 2018 Something For Everyone
Australain culture is much slower than the US culture. School wasn't full of assignments, there weren;'t peopel rushing around. Everyone just seemed to going their own pace. I slowed down alot and had time to focus on my own personal hobbies such as video editing and music which I hadn't done since I was in high school. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
February 13, 2017 Worth It!
I really wanted to learn about race and ethnic relations in a different country, and I felt that Australia would be a good choice. And I was right! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
March 02, 2016 Amazing
How to live as an American in a new country by myself. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I got the chance to travel a lot and experience so much of the Australian culture. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Melbourne Uni
I was able to experience many different cultures all in one place. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to cook for myself, how to eat healthier, how to juggle my education and living independently. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learn't all sort of things. How to move by myself in a different country, I learnt about different cultures, how to do most things by myself, etc. I loved studying abroad for the people I met and for such a fun and beautiful country but I must say that I did not like much the classes at the university. I wish they would have l... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
When I first arrived I was put through a bit of a trial... after 30 hours of traveling arriving to the dingy filthy apartment with no AC, internet, and lacked any access to contact anyone I knew.... I realized it would be harder than I thought. However through the little trials I was put through I learned a lot about my self and... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Cultural and corporate maturity and knowledge, long lasting and close friendships, and great adventures and experiences. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I gained a new perspective about myself, where am I from, and my current circumstances. I was able to integrate what I learned from my home institution into my academics abroad, and learned some new skills and strategies along the way. I made lifelong friends, and gained a perspective on a possible future life path from my exper... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned that I can go into a city where I knew no one, find my way around, and learn to love a city I knew nothing about. I found groups of friends and was willing to take advantage of opportunities. I learned to take risks and be vulnerable. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned differing perspectives, learned to be more informed in regards to my own country and to learn and respect other countries, ideals, and beliefs. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Throughout study abroad in Melbourne, I was able to experience a completely different but engaging method of academics and teaching while staying in apartment accommodation and managing my expenses for myself, which collectively made this a beneficial and diverting study abroad break from my home college where I learned a lot ab... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with University of Melbourne: Melbourne - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
As I previously mentioned, I made some wonderful new friends abroad and had amazing experiences travelling Australia. Melbourne is also a great city filled with delicious food, interesting artwork, and vibrant culture. Participating in the study abroad program at University of Melbourne is absolutely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Cross-cultural experiences, travel experiences, and experience living abroad. It was the best decision I've made. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile. I gained and learned an independence like I never could being even 3 hours away from my parents. I gained knowledge about differences in culture and how interesting and important it is to know about people different from yourself. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Because I studied abroad, I have a much greater appreciation for learning about other cultures and countries. I love traveling, but being able to experience a place for an extended period of time, and actually go to school in a different country was an enriching experience that I am forever grateful for. - University of Michigan - Ann Arbor View Entire Review
I learned to take better care of myself and not call my parents every time something goes wrong. I learned to enjoy the freedom and that sometimes eating veggies is good for you. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned what it is like not knowing a single person on an entire continent! Its fun and hard at the same time. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It is possible for me to live in another country! - Fordham University View Entire Review
definitely worthwhile - Trinity University View Entire Review
One of the biggest things I gained was an enriched cultural understanding. Moreso than things I learned in the classroom, I learned about other people and how they live and view the world. Not only did I just learn from Australians, but I made friends from around the world. - Villanova University View Entire Review
It was completely worthwhile because I learned more about myself and about learning, but I felt that this was more from personal development from my own initiative than from the academic program itself. After this semester, although I learned much from it, I felt I could have made more use of my time by choosing a program more t... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Metropolitan
Australia is not necessarily so different from any other anglo-saxon culture, but Australians still has a reputation for being more laid-back and relaxed than Americans, something my hands-on experience can now verify. Adapting was easy as living is extremely easy in Australia, despite the price levels. It was definitely worth w... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
