Sydney is very expensive. The estimate that is given is an ESTIMATE. If you are going through CAPA and KU study abroad, you will be offered services to travel to Cairns, Port Stephens, and other great traveling places; however, those expenses for those excursions are not included in the estimate. You will want to go on those trips... I promise.

Having an internship was the element of the program that I found the most rewarding, especially working for a non-profit organization on top of that. I was able to put my skills, knowledge and work into a position while still enjoying my time in another country. I liked having an internship over taking classes abroad because it really forces you to have cultural experiences in the office and you learn so much more about the country you are visiting instead of taking a course. You don't get just textbook answers from your co-workers and they can even tell you great places to travel, places to eat and more (you can't learn that by taking a class!)

I learned about how to really improve upon my skills for the professional world in addition in how to communicate, build, and maintain relationships with those that come from various backgrounds. Good communication is key in any workplace and gaining experience in being able to have good lines of communication between fellow workers and even building those strong relationships between organizations can be used in any future workplace.
