Ben Healy, University of Toronto, Spring 2019
I chose to go on the exchange principally because I wanted the adventure and the change of scenery. Also, the famed American college lifestyle was something I wanted to experience, and I felt I would have that opportunity in the University of Toronto. I also figured that employers would value someone who was able to put themselves about in the way an exchange demands, and this was also a factor in my decision.
The exchange itself was fantastic; being in and exploring a new city, befriending people from around the world and the feeling of independence that comes with moving to a new country all combine for an unforgettable experience. It puts you in a position that you have never before been in, and this brings with it massive opportunities for self-development.
Being in Toronto also positioned us well to travel, and we visited Quebec City and New York city, as well as going on a ski trip.
I would recommend the exchange without reserve. It is a unique way to spend a semester focusing on yourself whilst having a lot of fun along the way.
Mick Clifford, National University of Singapore, Spring 2019
My semester exchange in the National University of Singapore provided me with a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience a highly regarded education system, embedded in a culture that was totally at variance to anything I had experienced before. Diligence and endeavour form the bedrock of Singaporean culture and lifestyle. These values permeate all aspects of university life where students are engaged, motivated and eager to learn with unparalleled intensity. I consider it a privilege to have been part of this stimulating and dynamic educational experience that removed me from my comfort zone and challenged me to reach new heights.
The most significant benefit I derived from my term abroad has been the lasting friendships I forged with students from all over the world. Together we availed of the unique and exciting opportunity to travel to eight Asian countries. Each country with its intriguing history, amazing landscapes and varied cuisines provided us with its own distinct experiences and unforgettable memories. Mountain climbing in Taiwan, hot air ballooning in Cambodia, white water rafting in Thailand or even canyoneering in the Philippines are examples of some of the exciting social opportunities that I was privileged to partake in during the course of my exchange. My time in Singapore was one of the best experiences of my life and I could not recommend it enough!
