Expenses
Main source of funding:
Personal savings
Other sources of funding:
none
Work opportunities:
It was not legal for me to work
Personal spending habits
The exchange rate made living expenses greater in the States. I also lived at home in Australia and therefore had less expenses. However, I believe with careful budgeting it could have worked out around the same as in Australia.

Personal comments
None too significant. Perhaps students should consider the benefit of having a meal plan as they are quite expensive and it may be a lot cheaper to cook for themselves.

The academic life is excellent. Lots of discussions during classes. It's a great place to meet other international students. The American students are very nice and helpful.

Final comments
I recommend students going to UNC-CH to make the best of their stay by balancing study and leisure. A great place to travel to is Washington, D.C. It's about 5 hours by car from Chapel Hill and there's a lot to see and do.

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
While living on campus was an excellent way to interact with new people and make friends, it could be a little restricting at times sharing a room with a stranger. That said, I would probably do it again because it allowed me to get invloved in many more campus activities.

I do recommend it, I think it is great in some courses of study, like journalism, but in every case one should check out the school or deparment to go into before chosing.

In any case, I think exchange and study abroad widens your perspectives, and I hope it helps in getting a job!

Academic
Course recommendations
I chose to go to Chapel Hill because of its great academic standing. I wanted a real challenge and thus made sure I picked courses that really interested me and were high level and reading-intensive. I took two graduate and two undergraduate courses. I'd really given myself that challenge I was looking for and had to work harder than ever before! It was wonderful, though. Both the faculty and the course material were inspiring.

Personal comments
I was placed in the oldest and nicest dorm on campus, which was also very centrally located. Although all rooms were shared, as is standard practice in the US, I had a relatively large room and so still had my own space.
