The Education Abroad Network Reviews

Studying abroad seemed like a crazy idea to me at first but I knew I wanted to do it. I knew that I could do it, but it still scared me a little. I remember thinking at one point during my trip that growing up you meet people who live in your neighborhood and then people who go to your school. Then you go to high school and meet people with similar interests and people from other neighborhoods. Going to college you meet people who have similar goals and interests as you from a lot more neighborhoods. Studying abroad you meet people who are just as crazy as you are. I do mean this in the best way possible. What other experience will put you in a group of people who want to fly to the other side of the world and immerse themselves in a brand new culture? Where else can you find a group of people who are all excited to go diving on the reef or bungee jumping? This experience not only changed my perspective on the world but it also introduced me to people from all over the world who all were there with the same sense of adventure that I had. I traveled in the mindset that everything I was doing was going to be different than what I had done in my life previously, but it was all going to be great. To tell you the truth every minute of it was great, more than great. If I had it all to do over again I wouldn't change anything. I learned a lot more than academics on this trip and it is something that I am going to fondly remember for the rest of my life.
The best time of my life!

Studying abroad in Australia was one of the best decisions I've ever made, and going through TEAN made the experience easy and stress free. From the moment I started working with them I knew that I was in good hands, and that support doesn't end when you reach Australia. They're there for you from beginning to end.
James Cook University is a phenomenal school. The coursework is rigorous but worth the effort, and the field trips are amazing. For two courses I was able to live on a research station on the Great Barrier Reef, and for another I was in the Outback doing kangaroo surveys and catching frogs. Separate from JCU, Townsville is a wonderful city with pristine beaches and tons to do - I couldn't have asked for a better location. Studying abroad with TEAN was absolutely fabulous experience, and I would go back to Australia in a heartbeat.
The semester of a lifetime!

Studying abroad with TEAN, in Melbourne, was the best choice I've ever made. TEAN has amazing support, before during, and after you are abroad. My nerves were easily calmed and the orientation really got me settled in fast. TEAN gives each city a resident director, which is an amazing resource to help you get immersed into your city's culture.
Melbourne is an amazing city that has many opportunities, a great night life, amazing cafes, shops, and more. RMIT University is a great uni right in downtown Melbourne. I was able to meet many locals through my classes.
Overall, studying abroad in Melbourne with TEAN was better than I could have imagined! It truly was the experience of a lifetime.

Semester in Sydney
Submitted by Jolie - University of Pittsburgh | December 13, 2016
I absolutely loved my 5 month long study abroad experience through TEAN. I lived in the heart of Sydney and studied at UTS. Every day was a new adventure, whether it was walking to Darling Harbour, taking the train to Circular Quay to a) stare at the Opera House or b) take a ferry to Manly Beach or Watsons Bay or c) walk around The Rocks, hike in the Blue Mountains and Royal National Park, doing the Bondi-Coogee coastal walk, or traveling to other cities in Australia, and other countries such as New Zealand and Thailand. I learned so much about myself during my time abroad, and I gained a ton of new friends that I got to share this experience with! I learned the importance of travel and experiencing other cultures. Overall, my Sydney study abroad experience was an unbelievable and indescribable adventure, and I wish I could do it all over again!!
The best four months of my life

Whether you're traveling to Australia to explore the Great Barrier Reef, learn how to surf, see the Sydney Opera House, hug a koala, or any of the other amazing experiences that Australia has to offer, the Gold Coast is one of the most gorgeous places to live. A quick flight away from Cairns, Melbourne, and Sydney, you will have no problem traveling to some of your most dreamed of destinations. The Gold Coast is home to Surfer's Paradise, a modern shopping area and beach town by day, and a clubbing scene at night. A quick bus ride from Bond University will bring you here, unless you live off campus in Broadbeach, which will put you at a walking distance to Surfer's Paradise. You can also take a short bus ride from both Bond Uni and Broadbeach to Burleigh, which has a breathtaking beach along with a hiking area that offers some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen (Burleigh Heads Lookout). Another amazing and gorgeous place to check out is Coolangatta, which is about a 45 minute bus ride from Broadbeach, but totally worth it. Whatever you are looking for on your adventure to Australia, you will be sure to find it in the Gold Coast!
