University of Adelaide
5.0/5
Expenses
Main source of funding:
Personal savings
Other sources of funding:
none
Work opportunities:
I worked during my study abroad experience
Personal spending habits
the US dollar was stronger than the Australian dollar-fresh, cheap food was cheaper and easier to come by housing in a share house was much cheaper than in the US-prices are per week and not per month So overall I spent less than I would've if I lived in Bloomington, Indiana for one year!

Personal comments
flight tickets from city to city, yet one-way tickets are really cheap now with the introduction of Virgin Blue. Having one household shopping budget helped us-we'd buy veggies and basics at the weekend and split the cost. Much cheaper and easier than going individual. RIDE A BIKE IF POSSIBLE! This cuts down severely on transport prices (and keeps you in shape too!)

5.0/5
Expenses
Main source of funding:
Government assistance
Other sources of funding:
Other
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits
I constantly visit the Central Market and gorge on the delectable items it serves: from fresh farm produce to restos within the area. Travel you must, don't fail to get across Kangaroo Island. The seasonal breaks offer chance to travel: Visit Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, if budg and time allows. I sorely miss visiting Ayers Rock, though.
