Holly Poirier, BBA.MK-CO 2014, on exchange in Fall 2012

“What struck me most about the whole experience was how much smaller the world seemed afterwards. A place 17,000 km away that used to be foreign became a place that was truly my home, where I had incredible memories that will stay with me for the rest of my life.

Not only did I have the chance to take classes that aren’t offered at UNB, but now I have something on my resume that stands out.

Going overseas gave me so much confidence in myself and my own abilities. I’ve learned to trust my instincts and to have faith that things will work out one way or another. Before going on exchange I wouldn’t even jump off the high diving board at the pool, and by the end of it I was brave enough to go skydiving!

I couldn’t recommend this experience enough. If anyone had even the slightest interest or curiosity about this program I would encourage them to go for it.

Studying on exchange is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I met so many amazing people from every corner of the world and got to live in one of the most cultural and exciting cities in the world. I wouldn’t trade that experience for anything.”

Danial Smith, BSc.BIOL 2008, BA.PSYCH 2014, on exchange in Fall 2011

"My experiences since coming to Melbourne have been truly awesome. It has been one of the most exciting times of my life getting to live in a new culture and meet so many new people. Swinburne University has a beautiful campus with great professors and my classes have been very interesting. Australia has so much to offer... nice and welcoming people, beautiful landscapes, and some unique and amazing wildlife. This will be an experience I will never forget."
