Langue d'enseignement: Anglais
Apprendre le Anglais fut un élément important de la décision?
Non, pas vraiment.
It was difficult but fun to get used to Australian English from an American's standpoint (they use British English). Obviously the pronunciation and spelling is different, but using Microsoft Word when typing essays made any sort of written communication alright.
Otherwise Australians are always happy to meet a foreigner and you must listen closely to get the quick jokes!

Principale source de financement:
Mes propres économies
Autres sources de financement:
J'ai travaillé pendant mon séjour
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!
Vie nocturne, Téléphone, Voyager:
Aussi cher que chez moi
Général, Alimentation, Logement:
Moins cher que chez moi
Accés au matériel scolaire
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!)

Si j'avais su
Not to pack much stuff. Don't bring more than the basics! You'll buy so much that you won't have room to bring your old AND new stuff home!
Limit yourself to one small bag and see how it grows (remember you might want to bring home essays, books, etc from your studies...many people don't figure this into luggage requirements! Academic things are HEAVY!)
A mon avis:
La plupart ont aimé
Critères importants pour mon choix
(1) Aucune importance – (4) Très important
An excellent place to study. Not too big (you see familiar faces all around town), but big enough you'll meet new people! Definitely great for people who don't like super-huge cities, but like to go out to the "city" too (the university is right in the northern part of the city)
Pendant mon expérience à l'étranger j'ai...
(1) Jaimais – (4) Très souvent
Appréhendé une autre culture
Accru mes compétences linguistiques
Rencontré des gens d'autres pays
Amélioré mes possibilités de carrière
Wherever you choose to study abroad, keep your mind open and try to meet people from other countries as much as possible. You have your whole life to hang around with people from home (but if you meet great people from home, no problem!)
Get out there and do it! You'll be so glad you did!

Description de la ville:
Autant sur le campus qu'à l'extérieur
Voyager: A lieu surtout en hors campus
Vie nocturne, Activités: A lieu autant sur le campus et en dehors
Expérience personnelle de vie sociale
The Fringe Festival, every 2 years
The Crown and Anchor-good student beer prices
The Austral-great local and student hangout
The Planet-good for a cheesy night of dancing!
Best of all, make friends with as many people and international students you can when you arrive...I met so many wonderful fellow exchange students. We had so many social outings throughout the year, half the time we were at parties and private get-togethers rather than always public pubs, etc.

Type de logement: Appartement/maison
Si j'y retournais je choisirais: Appartement/maison
If I chose "university" housing, I would have lived with people of my own nationality, which is not the point of studying abroad.
By choosing a sharehouse owned by a native Australian, I experienced the culture more first-hand than in a private flat or university housing. I was able to be a part of a household and we all bought food together, and we were a lot like a family unit.
Adelaide has decent student housing, but most Australians live at home or rent their own flat, even in their first year of studies, so there aren't many Aussies living in the dorms (but there are some).
Those Americans who stayed in University housing had fun, but ended up hanging out with mostly Americans, which isn't my idea of studying abroad.
But Adelaide University helps students with finding their own accomodation, there's a whole office dedicated to it, so if you arrive in Adelaide with nowhere to stay, it's no problem finding other people who want to share a flat too.
