Yes, I recommend this program

An Amazing Experience Down Under

I stuided for a full Year in a Study Abroad programme from Brazil.
I found the installations to be Fantastic at UWA, as well as the Professors and the hole Team from this University.

I just felt very welcomed in there, since we had an Orientation Week wich allowed me to get to know the Campus and gave me tips in subjects that went beyond the University, such as "How to find a residence", besides the welcome Parties wich helped to get to know a wide virety of students.

I would surely, if I had a chance, have another experience at UWA.

Just Fantastic. :)
