Quotes from Scholars
Australia (Research, 2014-15)
My advice to prospective applicants would simply be to think hard about how throwing yourself entirely into your host university and country for five months can broaden you far more than any five years that you spend at your home university. Instead of doing the things we normally do to check off boxes on our CVs, plan to spend your precious time doing all of the things you can only do in Australia to get the most from the experience…so much of what I learned here simply came from the social and intellectual interactions with a nation of people who are always up for a good chat."
