A big part of being on exchange is of course being in a new country, and being able to explore as much of your new home as possible. Therefore, when mid-semester break came around at the University of Melbourne me and two other exchange student friends chose to take this opportunity to explore another part of Australia – its red centre and Uluru.

Choosing accommodation for your year abroad is one of the most stressful and time consuming tasks, made even trickier by the fact you are likely organising it all from home. In Melbourne there are three main options for accommodation: a sharehouse (usually found through facebook), private student accommodation (such as UniLodge) or a college. I chose the third option, and live at Trinity College.
