Program Reviews:
Jill Elizabeth Langlas, Spring 2012 Participant
I felt the most rewarding experience was being able to adapt and live in a different part of the world for five whole months. I made some amazing friendships that made me grow as a person.

Rachel Elizabeth Beach, Spring 2017 Participant
I certainly wasn't prepared for 5 months in a new country, but I learned more, experienced more, and developed new passions and interests as I made new friends and explored a new place. It may take a lot of effort on your part to make your semester abroad possible, but it will be worth it.

Eva Jean Kough, Fall 2015 Participant
It is actually a lot easier to balance schoolwork with travel and enjoying the time you have in Wollongong. The course loads are a lot different than in the states and it leaves a lot more time to relax or explore or mingle.
