Program Reviews:
Spring 2013 Participant
The location of the program was ideal. Being in Australia, there is a lot to do and see. The location was just a train ride from Sydney, cheap flights from popular destinations, and a very, very short walk to the beach. The location made the program much more enjoyable.

Benjamin J Gillig, Fall 2018 Participant
The people in Australia were all very kind and accommodating to foreign students. It was also very easy to get around the city of Newcastle and Australia in general.

Olivia P Hansen, Fall 2018 Participant
I found the community of studying abroad most rewarding, you never feel alone as you always have someone (whether abroad or at KU) that has your best interests in mind.
