USyd is pretty challenging, the classes aren't blow offs

 

Beier Zhu, Spring 2016 Participant
The tutorials are very helpful for me to understand better about the learning materials. I got more chances to discuss the lecture with my peers, and I met a few excellent people and make friends with them from my management class tutorial.

The University of Sydney exchange program exceeded my expectations in every way possible. I had the greatest time abroad, I wish it could have never ended.

University of Sydney has a extraordinarily international environment. It has a lot of exchange students from all over the world. During this semester, I feel I become more international. My best friends are from Japan and Singapore. Also, I hang out with exchange students from Iceland, Germany, US and Italy. I hope I can visit them in the future!

I recommend the accommodation of Urbanest on Cleveland St. It gathers a lot of exchange students and holds events frequently.

Be brave. It's worth it. (Also pay for one of the orientation trips! It is the best time to make friends. The people I traveled with and became close with were people I met on those trips.)

If you're looking for a very western, English speaking place that doesn't differ greatly from the US, Sydney is a great spot. And really fun.

Every dollar, ounce of stress and moment of uncertainty was worth it. There's no price tag for the best moments of your life."

This exchange program has been the best decision I've made during my whole University career. My advice to anyone considering a program through the UGA OIE - do it. I promise it will be an adventure of a lifetime and an experience you will cherish forever. Thank you OIE for giving me this amazing opportunity.
