Perth is a nice and fancy place with lots of stuff to do (beach, parks, cafes, pubs, museums, cultural events etc.). However, since it is very isolated it can become a bit boring sometimes; therefore, it is crucial to go outside perth and explore the surroundings such as Margaret River.
UWA has a beautiful campus and is fantastic overall. The academic system and challenge however, are not great. Some of the courses have amazing tutors and lots of potential whereas others are boring and lack a certain quality of teaching and organisation. One aspect I can only recommend are the five residential colleges. The community, facilities, programmes and staff are fantastic and it really made the semester abroad a great experience.
Overall it was an unforgetable experience and I can only recommend Perth and UWA!
