Overall Experience
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
I learned a lot about society and culture in Australia and how different it is from American society. It was interesting to see a different way of life, and how different the universities are. The courses were great and I learned so much about Australian society and indigenous and multicultural issues. It was definitely worthwhi... - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review

It was extremely worthwhile. This experience opened my eyes to the Australian culture. Working in Australia also may have changed my future plans. I wouldn't mind working in Australia since I was offered a part-time position after my internship ended. - Trinity University View Entire Review
During the program I was able to visit locations that influenced my career path. In visiting different professional settings and listening to lectures on how Evidence Based Practice should be applied, I now have something to bring back to my campus. I can be a leader in the classroom and the professional world and emphasize th... - Texas Christian University View Entire Review
Yes, it was completely worthwhile. As I sit in Texas, I wish I could be back in Melbourne living at St. Mary's and going to school there everyday. The city, the people, and the lifestyle totally fit my personality and made me realize that I will do anything to go back. - Texas Christian University 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

Yes, life changing. - Barnard College View Entire Review
Yes. It is hard to explain how fulfilling this experience is until you go out there and do it yourself. I became independent and look at things a little different now. I am definitely interested in learning about different cultures more than I was before and would love to keep traveling. - Ithaca College View Entire Review

enjoyed a different political environment and the people as well as the adventures - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned a lot and loved being in Australia. However, I wish I had more free time during the Sydney component to explore the city! There is so much to do there! - Texas Christian University View Entire Review
Being evacuated from Egypt helped me to learn many things. I was able to put my planning skills to the test and learned that I'm extremely good at organizing myself on short notice. Meeting new people and seeing amazing things just speaks for the sheer power of coincidence and the impact one decision can have on so many lives. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I was really bummed out with the weather. My decision to study in Melbourne wasn't very informed. I didn't expect it to be as cold and rainy as it was, and I was expecting more of the stereotypical "Aussie life" in Melbourne. The idea of AUSTRALIA was just so intriguing and I didn't think you could go wrong. But if I could d... - University of California - Berkeley View Entire Review
Studying abroad was one of the most rewarding, enriching, and memorable experiences of my life. I made friends that I will hopefully forever remain in touch with. Saw sites that instilled a sense of awe, and a desire to travel the world to see more. Learned about a culture that I thought was exactly the same as America, but actu... - Tufts University View Entire Review
