Margarita - 2019

I decided to complete another short term experience after having completed last year's exchange program to Finland. I fell in love with the Nordics and was set on coming back to experience more of Scandinavia. I believe the rest of the world has so much to learn about these group of northern countries and they are leading the way when it comes to education, healthcare, design, innovation and happiness! (Finland and Denmark are number 1 and 2 in the World Happiness Report).

Junyue - 2019

First of all, taking part in short-term experience allows me to get two UQ credits in other schools and other countries. Second, I think this is a good opportunity to open up my horizons. I can take advantage of the short-term experience program to experience the education system of other countries, learn about the culture of other countries, meet friends from all over the world, and travel to other countries.
