Studying abroad at UniSC was one of the best decisions I ever made. I found the campus had a vibrant and welcoming community of students and staff. The location on the Sunshine Coast was also a huge plus with endless beaches, national parks, and charming towns to explore.

The academic program was challenging and engaging, and I was able to take courses in a wide range of subjects. In addition to the academic benefits, studying abroad at UniSC also helped me to grow personally by pushing me out of my comfort zone and helping me to become more independent and confident.

I would highly recommend studying abroad at UniSC for anyone looking for a unique and enriching experience that will broaden their horizons and help them to grow both academically and personally.

I made the decision to take a semester away from home to go down under at UniSC, and it was the best decision of my life. I found that my courses here at UniSC were a lot more relaxed than the courses I had at home.

For my science courses at home, I can expect to have four exams throughout the semester along with lab work and other smaller assignments and quizzes. Here, however, most of my courses consisted of one project and a final exam which gave me so much more time to explore.

My experience studying at UniSC has been unforgettable and I am so blessed that I was able to experience this beautiful country.
