The alluring Land Down Under is known for its cultural diversity, spectacular range of landscapes, and laid-back culture. The sheer variety of Australia's locations, peoples, and programs guarantees you'll find the experience you want. Outside its popular cities of Sydney and Melbourne, venture into tropical rainforests, the Outback's red desert, or the Great Barrier Reef. You can pair your adventures with studies of the environment and sustainability, or take a different path in physics, global security, or an internship. The nation’s capital, Canberra, has all the attractions of a major city in a smaller area where you can also enjoy hiking, skiing, and cycling. In any city you are sure to gain new perspectives on Aboriginal society and the Asia-Pacific region.

I have never had the experience of learning something in the classroom and then seeing it firsthand every single day. Knowledge never came as easily or stuck with me as it did in Australia. I am now working on publishing another scientific paper. My confidence in myself and my ability is multitudes higher since returning from my study abroad experience.
Within three months in Queensland, I was able to conduct two full research projects on North Stradbroke Island in Moreton Bay and Heron Island in the southern Great Barrier Reef. Australia could not have come at a more perfect time in my personal and educational life. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity.
