My experience

Travelling to The Netherlands for a short term program with AIM Overseas has been the most rewarding part of my university experience so far. Combining travel and study is a wonderful opportunity and living in Maastricht with other Australian university students was a perfect combination of familiarity and discovery. Although three weeks in Europe went quickly, they were jam packed with intense study, enriching study excursions to Amsterdam and Brussels, and spending time with newly made friends in what felt like our new home town.




From cycling on cobble-stoned paths, to table tennis bars, to grocery shopping for foreign foods, to snow days, to bus trips over the German border, to stepping foot in countless converted churches, and much more, you will enjoy yourself in ways you never have, and the memories will stay with you once you've returned home.

I recommend that every university student partake in an overseas study experience, but be warned...a short term program will definitely make you want to go back for a full semester!
