Unforgettable time-made me move back!
Submitted by Izzy Sandoval - - | June 07, 2017
I am so grateful to have spent a semester in Melbourne. It has become my favourite city in the world, and is the reason now I am back in Australia in hopes of living here long term. Melbourne is an amazing city with an artistic plethora of activities and neighbourhoods to wander around. I made some of the most amazing friends of my life in Melbourne and in the program as well. The University is beautiful and the professors are very approachable despite the large class sizes. I will always regard this experience as the best thing I ever chose to do in my college career. Thank you TEAN!
The Best 5 Months of My Life!

Studying abroad in Sydney was definitely one of the best decisions I ever made! There's so much to do in and around the city and by going through TEAN I was given so many more opportunities to learn about the city and to interact with locals. I attended the University of Sydney so I lived near Central Station, pretty much in the middle of the city. This location was so awesome for me because there was so much around my apartment and I was only a walk to my classes and a short train or bus ride away from everything else. Being in this part of Sydney was really cool because it gave you that big city feel but you were also close to Bondi Beach, Coogee, Manly and several other beaches so that the city itself didn't become too overwhelming.
In my free time, I loved going to all the beaches, eating at some amazing places (Harry's in Bondi is delicious), taking the ferry to Manly Beach- they had pretty good shopping over there, and all around exploring the city. Some of the must-do's of Sydney include the Opera House of course, Bondi to Coogee walk, the Harbour Bridge Climb, Taronga Zoo, Luna Park, Bondi Icebergs Pool, the weekend markets in The Rocks, the Figure 8 pools - harder to get out to but if you can do it, I definitely recommend. If you're into museums Sydney also has a plethora of different types for you to choose from. I also got the opportunity to go see a concert in the Sydney Olympic Park which was a really cool experience in itself. But, without TEAN I wouldn't have been able to do some of the awesome things that I did. They took us surfing at Bondi Beach, to a show at the Opera House, kayaking in the Sydney Harbour amongst other things. They're so awesome about giving unique opportunities that I don't think I would have otherwise been able to do.
What I also loved about my experience with TEAN is that at orientation I not only met the people who would be in my city, I also met people who'd be studying at universities all over Australia which gave me tons of people to see and places to stay when traveling!
In terms of nightlife, Sydney has so many different types of clubs and bars to choose from. Ivy is probably one of the most well-known clubs, it even has a rooftop pool. The Argyle in The Rocks is also really fun and afterward stop and get some pancakes in the Rocks. Darling Harbour is great both during the day and at night boasting tons of restaurants, bars, and clubs. Coogee Pavilion is also great for happy hour.

University of Newcastle- TEAN ABROAD

I was at first very hesitant to travel and live over 16,000 miles away from home, but I am so incredibly happy I did. From Orientation with TEAN at the Great Barrier Reef to meeting and studying with the locals, I would not change my experience if I could. The TEAN staff made it helpful to ease into the new culture of Australia. They also were very prompt in answering phone calls and emails if you had a question, while abroad.

I had such a good experience abroad. I am pretty sure everyone says that, but it was a big life changing moment for me. It opened up my eyes to the world and to myself. It really made me get a different perspective on situations and I feel as if I am living a better and healthier lifestyle because of it.

wowzers-- that hashtag "#best4monthsbond" was true

Hi, I'm Mike. I studied abroad through The Education Abroad Network (TEAN) at Bond University, during the Spring of my sophomore year in college (Spring 2015). I had always dreamed of going to Australia and the experience was beyond all of my expectations. As I began to pursue and research my interests in studying abroad, I picked up the phone and called TEAN. I was greeted by the amazing staff member that were extremely willing to answer any and all questions I had. Even when I asked some of the same questions over and over again, I was always supported by TEAN's passion-driven staff. TEAN afforded me opportunities that I cannot begin to repay and truly allowed me to have the best experience possible, while at Bond and in Australia (AND the post-semester Fiji excursion-- what a dream). Here's one of my favorite photos from the trip, with some fellow TEAN friends. We were cool as hell, or at least thought we were.
