Purdue University, USA
Being a professional flight student at UNSW, I had a chance at Purdue University to fly my very own carbon fibre rocket that we made in class, as well as to talk to an astronaut who had done space walks. Moreover, I had the chance to meet up with people who are a part of aviation history, of which I think is remarkable.
Going to the other side of the globe may sound frightening at first - but never again. During the course of exchange, I have been to Hong Kong, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago - all on my own. Going on exchange did not only provide me with an excellent opportunity to study in another university; it has also provided me with a very valuable opportunity to see the world differently. I have met a lot of new friends from all over the world - including America, China, Germany, Japan, Khuzestan, Korea, Netherlands, Poland and more - literally from all over the world.
Being an exchange student has been an important chapter of my life. It is something that you would definitely not want to miss as a part of your university life. I am very glad that I took part in the programme and I would like to say a big thank you to the UNSW International Exchange Programme.
