Are you ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery, cultural immersion, and breathtaking beauty? Join me as I share why studying abroad in Australia is the best decision I have ever made.
I am Floris, an international student from the Netherlands, and I just spent the most amazing trimester studying abroad in Australia at Griffith University‘s Gold Coast Campus. And let me tell you, it was the best decision I ever made!
Reason #1: The Nature Around You
First of all, nature in Australia is just something else. The country is famous for its breathtaking landscapes, and the Gold Coast is right in the middle of it all. With three of my favourite landscapes – beaches, rainforests, and mountains – all within reach, I was constantly out and exploring. I had endless opportunities to surf, sunbathe, and just relax in the warm sun. The weather was always perfect – sunny and warm – which made it easy to enjoy the great outdoors every day.
Reason #2: Making International Friends
But what made it even better was all the amazing international friends I made. I met like-minded individuals from all over the world, like Germany, Aruba, Switzerland, and Chile, who shared my passion for adventure and cultural immersion. We all bonded over our experiences, and I learned so much about different cultures, beliefs, and values. Plus, I now have friends all over the world to visit!
