BA Geography student James Ringrow speaks about studying abroad at the University of Queensland.

I visited New Zealand during my second year to spend a semester studying at the University of Auckland. It was the most amazing experience of my life and I would totally recommend anyone considering U21 to just go
for it.
I spent the first half of my second year studying at the University of Melbourne. It was a unique experience and completely different from travelling because you feel like you've really integrated into the country. Every day was exciting and my grades actually went up!
