    Tasmania

The 2015 Dark Mofo festival was the first year where UTAS (University of Tasmania) was able to be front and centre, our Hunter Street campus was used as the location for a number of installations and our students were also involved with artist's from Indonesia to create a number of sculptures...

    Kate went to Flinders University on exchange to study criminology and English literature

    "Adelaide is very laid back, and everyone is surprisingly warm, open and welcoming. I also seem to be doing more sports here than I ever do at home, so I feel amazing!"Flinders is more challenging than my university at home - I’m certainly never bored here! I live in the university hall and we have all pretty much been forced into getting to know each other. It’s been embarrassing, hilarious, warming – there is not a bad apple among us."When I finish at Flinders I want to write. I’d love to...

    Anna was studying a Masters in Marine Science at the University of Otago

Then, when I looked into it, I found Otago has the best reputation for marine science (and all scientific research) in NZ."I arrived a month before term - my sister and I bought a car in Auckland and did a road trip from north to south island. My first impressions of the country have stayed with me – Kiwis are just the friendliest, most chilled-out people and the country is totally...

    Western Australia

    Stuart is from Perth in Scotland and was studying a Bachelors in English and Latin at the University of Western Australia

    "Initially, I fancied studying marine biology and, as I was more willing to picture myself splashing around in the Coral Sea than in the North Sea, I started looking at Australian universities. I ended up changing my mind about what to study and decided to focus on humanities-type subjects, but the change in what I wanted to do didn’t change where I wanted to do it. Studying in Australia, to me, represented the opportunity to experience somewhere different and to really get to appreciate it...
