Study Abroad Australia
Studying abroad in Adelaide, South Australia, was a mind-opening experience filled with education, diversity, and adventure. I lived just outside the main city in a "college," which is very similar to the university dorms. Living here provided me with a relaxing environment of the suburbs with friendly neighbors, while also being just a short walk to the city central where there is an abundance of great food, pubs, and activities for students like me. Adelaide, the "20 minute city", was located 20 minutes from both the Adelaide Hills and the beaches of the St. Vincent Gulf, so there was never a dull moment.A typical day at the University of South Australia started with a stunning walk along the Torrens River to get to the lecture halls. The campus was very modern and practical for me as a student, and the classrooms, libraries, and professors were always lively and accessible. Lectures typically had over 100 students, but tutorials divided the students into much smaller groups, which helped with learning and getting to know the local students and professors. The learning never stopped outside of the classroom with museums, art galleries, and historic sites neighboring the campus. Also nearby were the Adelaide Zoo, Botanic Gardens, and the famous Rundle Mall which was filled with amazing street performers.
