Coming to UWAis a very good choice for me. It gave me a lot of opportunities and chances to get to know people and learn more about the local American culture. With all the other international students, you are actually building the connection with the whole world. It was an awesome experience when I studied at UWA.
A really big positive from my time here has been the international house. Having the international house as a friendly and welcoming place we can come to relax or seek assistance has been really helpful. All of the faculty within the I-House have been incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating and it makes such a big difference knowing I have this support base to rely on for any issues or questions that come up. On this note, all of the faculty I have interacted with during my time at UWA have had a positive effect on my exchange. The teachers and staff I encountered while I was here were all very welcoming, helpful and accommodating. Everyone went out of his or her way to make this exchange a really positive experience, and the impact that has had will not be forgotten. Another positive of the exchange is all the events that happen on campus. There always seemed to be something going on (most of the time cheap or free for students). All of these events were really good especially when I first arrived in creating opportunities to meet other people and feel involved on campus- from the various sports events, campus board events and the events hosted by I-house.
International Programs was very good and professional in helping me in every way. The American educational system was quite different but most enjoyable. I could chose my own classes and consider the organizational and psychological aspects of each. UWA has a variety of clubs and students can be involved in as many activities as they wish.
I have enjoyed my time here in UWA and am glad to have been exposed to a different kind of teaching method from what I am used to back in Australia. The classroom teaching style has benefitted me greatly. Being in such close range with my professors enabled me to be extremely attentive in class and interact with professors during and after class which helped me with the learning process and got me feeling really involved in the class. From day 1, the professors and school staff have gone out of their way to make sure that I am comfortable adjusting to the new environment and I have made sure to keep students focused not only on their studies but also their life goals. I have been taught by top-notch professors here and I know I have gained a solid foundation for the future. I will treasure my experience being a business exchange student in UWA.
As a student from Nepal, my experience at UWA so far has been beautifully enlightening both from a cultural perspective as well as an educational perspective. I came to UWA so that I could be exposed to a culture of people, ideas, and habits that significantly differed from my own. I was seeking a learning experience that would broaden my perspective whilst simultaneously allowing me to embrace my uniqueness and develop myself further. Having now spent a semester at UWA, I am glad I chose to be a part of this small, yet intellectually curious society where I have had the opportunity to learn something new from even the most trivial of things. The community here is one of the most supportive ones I have been in, and has been one of my favorite things about UWA. Not only have I been able to utilize this experience to develop and grow as a person, but the multitude of options for involvement on campus are refreshingly encouraging and have been a boon for me personally, allowing me to become a better-rounded citizen globally and here at UWA. There is, indeed, just something about this place.
