I am a Business student from the University of Applied Sciences Regensburg and as part of my study program I had to go abroad for two semesters. There were so many different options to choose from, but I decided to leave Europe and travel to the other side of the world. And I have to say, that doing a Bachelor of Business at the USC, was one of the best decisions I have ever made!
When I came here, I was impressed by the new facilities, friendly lecturers and tutors as well as the wonderful nature surrounding the university. In general you can say that the system differs from the German one. There is a lecture and a tutorial for every course and the examination consists out of assignments, presentations and exams. This might sound a bit overwhelming to you, but with the help of the lecturers that know you by name and will support you with any questions you may have, it is definitely manageable.
But there is more to two semesters abroad, than just studying! For me, being part of Activate was one of the best experiences. USC Activate is an outdoor activity and adventure sports club for USC students that among other things organises camping trips in the beautiful national parks of Queensland as well as a Fraser Island trip at the end of each semester. And don’t forget that you can go to the beach daily and enjoy the warm weather even in the winter months!
I got to know amazing people from all around the world, made some lifelong friends and had the opportunity to visit some of Australia’s most beautiful places during my time abroad.
I absolutely loved studying at the USC and can just recommend it to everyone!
