  2. Studying abroad in Australia • This became my goal in the beginning of my senior year • This became my goal because it has been something that I have been thinking about for when I go to college • Its important because its something different and interesting. I’ve never done it before and it will keep me traveling because I'm use to it from being in a military family • Something good that will come out of this is meeting new people, traveling, learn a new language, and get college credit

  7. What to expect When finding a place to stay… Have an open mind • Three different housing options

  8. What to expect When you get there.. Have an open mind • Communication might be limited • Language will be different • Time difference • Class schedule might be longer or shorter • Might eat meals later or earlier in the day • Might have to walk or catch the bus instead of driving • Facilities might be run down; not what you might have expected • Different types of foods • Everything isn't local or near you • No wifi or reception • Limited ATM machines or banks • Might not have toilet paper • Bathrooms aren't the same, maybe you have to go in a hole in the ground

  9. My preference Where I would personally like to stay when I go to Australia. What I want to see, things I want to do, etc • I want to go to La Trobe University - Bundoora • Go during the summer of 2017 (May – July) • Live in a residence hall/dorm • I will be going with one of my friends • I will catch the bus around town, and walk to my classes • I want to check out the beaches, visit the animals, and explore

  10. interview Catherine Spencer from University of Portland. Just came back from Australia last fall What made you want to study abroad? “She wanted to do a study abroad program from her sophomore year in HS. She loves to travel and explore new places. She choose Australia because it fit her schedule and stayed on track with her nursing program. Plus she now gets to cross Australia off her bucket list.” What did you do when you were in Australia? “She was able to plan her own trip, take classes that helped with her nursing major, learned how to adjust to the school schedule, and managed her own money. She was able to take trips to different beaches, hike, and do road trips. Plus she had a four day layover in Sydney, so she got to explore there too.” Do you have any advice for people that decide to study abroad? “To make the most out of every moment. If you get breaks in your school schedule get out and explore something new. Do some research on where you will be staying and things to do there. To plan ahead and make friend s with the locals because they can help you out.” What is your life goal? “Her personal goal is to graduate from college as a nurse and start working as a travel nurse. She loves traveling and helping others. The best way he could think to help those in need was to work abroad in the health field care. She really hopes to one day travel to other countries helping bring healthcare to the less fortunate.”
