Alexa from HS Ansbach studying at USC!
The time at the University of the Sunshine Coast was the best time of my studies. The USC is a partner university of my home university (University of Applied Sciences Ansbach). That’s why it was pretty easy for me to organise my semester abroad. The University of the Sunshine Coast has a lovely campus and you can see kangaroos nearly every day.
The lectures and workshops were challenging, because studying in Australia is totally different compare to Germany. At the University of the Sunshine Coast you are not a little number of many students. The professors, tutors and USC staff are really friendly and try always their best to help the students with their studies or other problems. There are many student clubs at the University which you can join. For example the student guild offers yoga and a fitness class every week.
I am studying Media and I used the photo studio and the Mac rooms at the uni. The equipment is really good and international students are allowed to use everything.
I also enjoyed the freetime at the Sunshine Coast. You can visit several nice places here. We saw waterfalls, jumped into natural lagoons, climbed mountains, spent time at the beach, camped in the middle of nowhere, searched for big fishes while we snorkelled, had great party’s and met awesome people.
It’s really hard to leave right now. I will definitely come back to this beautiful country.
Thank you USC for the support and the awesome time.
