Personal comments
The accomodation was okay (rooms were a bit small, but very clean, housemates were really nice) and the facilities were very good (Internet-access in your room, fitness-center, library, etc.). Festivals were organized... all in all it was really okay!!

Personal spending habits
Food, accomodation, phone is pretty cheap in Australia. Why I spent more for travelling and nightlife? I think I need not answer this question - IT'S NORMAL!

Open yourself to the others (students and staff) and they will open as well. Very nice atmosphere to be enjoyed at any time.

Careful with visa, permits, and all administrative stuff. Buy a second-hand car there if possible, distances are huge (nothing to do with Europe) in the city itself. Excellent time guaranteed if expenses carefully managed. Academic experience OK. Visit Bali (Indonesia)! And Sydney!

My English is definitely better now. In the beginning I had difficulties in understanding the Aussie slang, but at the end I coped pretty well and even copied some typical Aussie phrases

If you're looking for a truly international experience, then Melbourne is the place to go to! And why LaTrobe, because while not being located directly in the city you get to know people better. It's a true "campus" life.

Australia is a fantastic country, economically and culturally dynamic, with nice weather conditions and certainly australians are one of the nicest and kindest people in the western world! In addition you get to see amaizing landscapes, learn more about the aboriginal culture, and practice any type of sport you want. Basically everything is possible in Australia, at relatively cheap rates, from skying, hiking to surfing and sunbathing on magnificent beaches...
