I always wanted to study abroad and for the international exposure program, I chose Flinders University which has the dual degree program. Firstly, I am totally impressed by the laid-back lifestyle and pleasant learning environment in Adelaide. Everything here is easy to be accessed by students. Flinders has a free service bus that runs during semester so I don’t need to pay extra money to go to the campus. Furthermore, one of the topic offered by Flinders University is International experience/practicum. It was an opportunity for me to develop professional skill in international studies and consolidate my research and practical skill by experiencing a suitable workfare placement. From this experience I had an absolutely fantastic time volunteering at Welcome to Australia, one of NGOs in Australia. And also I found that the people here are very open minded and friendly. Here, in Flinders University, I don’t only get learn the Australian culture but also make international friends.
