Joanna Mariah Yutrzenka, Fall 2014 Participant
Studying abroad in Australia was a great choice for me. Before this experience, I didn't have any experience traveling outside of the US. While abroad, I got to travel all the time and see so many cool places. Living in a different culture was a very rewarding experience because it helped me to see things from a different point of view. I also got to meet so many amazing people, many of whom I miss very dearly. My time in Australia made me very interested in traveling to other parts of the world as well. Studying abroad in Australia was definitely one of the best choices I've made, and I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for an adventure.
Spring 2014 Participant
I had an amazing time studying abroad in Australia. I met some great people and did some unforgettable things while I was there. If I had the money to study abroad again in a different country I would in a heart beat. The school I was at was very unorganized and not well ran. I did have some really great professors and learned a lot from them. I really learned a lot about myself and what I am looking for in life. Moving away really puts what is important into perspective. I wish I would have been given more information about what to do while I was over there. There are so many places I wish I would have visited or interesting things to do while I was over there.
Spring 2015 Participant
It was everything I expected and more. I would definitely recommend University of the Sunshine Coast to any potential study abroad students. I had an unforgettable experience that I wish I had the chance to do again!
