Long Holidays & New Opportunities

Hi everyone! It’s been a long time since my last blog, but in coming back to university for 2014 I’m rediscovering the great things about student life at QUT!

Of all the perks of being a student at QUT, long holidays and amazing real-world opportunities have got to be my favourites. Unfortunately, since semester has started, my long holiday is over; but the opportunity has just begun!

So what did I do with my long holiday?

Well, just like a lot of uni students I traveled abroad, and of course I picked the destination that’s been number one on my list for quite a while: South Korea. I stayed with the family of a fellow QUT student and had the best time; experiencing the culture, shopping, skiing, and even staying at a pension owned by one of Korea’s top celebrities, G-Dragon!

Leaving was sad, but the upside of coming back and resuming university after the holidays: with hard work and study, I’ll be able to go back through QUT’s exchange program! Not only that, but since QUT is partnered with some of the best universities all over the world, I may even be able to study a university like Korea University or Hanyang University. Exciting!
