Why Study in Australia?
Diverse, laid-back, and stunningly scenic, Australia is a wonderful country for World Endeavors students to learn new things and expand their worldview. Students with an interest in the outdoors will find Australia a particularly appealing destination, perfect for hiking through extraordinary parks or kicking back on the beach. At the same time, Australia’s major cities boast world-class academic, business, and artistic institutions. Australia has close ties to the Western world, but the cultures of the South Pacific, Aboriginal Australians, and the Asian countries of the Pacific Rim also contribute to this country’s unique personality. And English is spoken here, making it easy for American students to jump right in to their host university’s academic and social life.
The Value of Studying Abroad
Studying abroad is one of the best choices students can make to deepen their studies and expand their worldview. It’s a chance to learn new ways to think, to meet new friends from around the world, and to be immersed in a new culture or in some cases even a new language. Students who go abroad have access to art, scenery, historical sites, and cultural events that can’t be found at home. No matter what they study, students will find going abroad to be an education in thinking across cultures and adapting to new experiences. And for many, studying abroad is the spark that ignites a lifelong passion for international travel and cultural exploration.

I gained a stronger sense of independence. I have always been self-motivated and fairly independent, but this gave me the extra reassurance to take on new experiences.
