I found the relationships you establish while abroad to be the most rewarding aspect. I have formed relationships with people from all over the world, people I am determined to remain in contact with as they have impacted my life in ways that I could never explain. In addition, this network has allowed me to understand other cultures, furthering my cultural competence while also encouraging me to travel and explore in order to see them again.

The grading system was was much more rigorous in Australia than that of the States. I was challenged to think critically and engage more in each of my courses. Ultimately, I formed better relationships with my professors and learned more than ever before, developing a renewed interest in learning.

I learned that Australia is an expensive place; a wonderful country, but be prepared to break your bank. Also, the culture is so amazing and the transition was really easy!
