I mean come on, it's Australia!

Compared to Architecture school in the US class is a walk in the park, which is great for studying abroad. 9 hours of class a week only on Tue and Wed. Plenty of places to go to party and all. Living conditions are not up to American Standards, it's like living in a frat house and most people don't want to live in frat houses. And the people who own the ressies just collect rent and don't really do much else other than but on some killer events. And yes, there are legit parrots and kangaroos on campus.

Great exchange :)

I've been having a great time here at UC so far. My units are challenging but interesting and the lecturers are willing to help when you need it. I love my housemate but it would be nice if we didn't have to place so many fix-it requests (though I know that is a CLV thing). Canberra is a great city, I find the bus transportation is awesome compared to where I am from, and it's really central for travelling to other cities. I would definitely recommend an exchange to UC!

One of the best places you can go abroad

University of Canberra is a tiny university compared to what I am used to back in the United States but the small setting enhances the exchanges' stay abroad. With a limited time in Australia, no one would like to end up with a gigantic campus where they would have a harder time getting around.

The best thing about UC is how friendly everyone is since. My experiences living on res were wonderful because the people were always happy, relaxed, and easy going. A regular routine on a school week was filled with may educational but also fun activities. At UC you don't have to chose between one or the other. I had time for school work and for hanging out with friends, going out, and on top of that travelling just about every weekend.

Go to UC and I promise you will have an amazing time

Excellent Experience

I had a great time meeting people from different places in the world as well as locals.

The staff was great with responding to any of my questions or concerns.

I was able to travel around and still have time to do all my studying.

Uni of Canberra was a great place to study because the res life was amazing! There were so many ways to get involved, always something going on, and plenty of things to do to have a great time! I enjoyed actually living with Aussies and really getting to know there culture and way of life.
