Program Reviews:
Rachel Elizabeth Beach, Spring 2017 Participant
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.

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.

The University of Wollongong was my temporary home University along the coast of beautiful Australia. Australia was an adventure with unlimited opportunities including scuba diving, mountain climbing, surfing, sky diving, and much more. I loved the vast nature, the unique animals, and the wonderful people and professors I befriended.
