Take the chance & STUDY ABROAD!

Monday-Thursday I had class. Mondays and Tuesdays were my busiest days but it wasn't so bad. The campus at Bond University was breathtaking. I technically studied abroad in paradise. When I wasn't traveling or studying, I would go to the pool on campus or take the bus to the mall, beaches, and clubs. Surfers Paradise and Broad Beach were two of the main hot spots. I thought school work was pretty much the most difficult because I hadn't had too many assignments but the ones I did required a lot of work and the grading process was very different. Class was not so bad to go to though because the material was interesting to learn about. Traveling was definitely the best part of my experience. I went to Sydney, Melbourne, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Outback.

How can this program be improved?
Prices were extremely high compared to America. The food majority wasn't as abundant as it is at home. I wish they graded differently too at Bond University.
Yes, I recommend this program
