Goodbye Essex, Hello Australia and New Zealand

Subtitle of event Interested in studying abroad in Australia or New Zealand for one term or a year? Join this session to learn more.

Australia and New Zealand are two of the most popular study abroad destinations at Essex. But, wherever in the world you choose to study abroad, there’s a good chance it’ll be a lot different to Essex.

As English speaking countries, you might assume it’ll be easy to accustom to life down under, but that isn’t always the case. It’s useful (and really important) to get to grips with how things work over there before you think about applying to one of our partner universities in Australia or New Zealand in your year abroad application (just to make sure it’s definitely right for you).

We’ll discuss:

  • Expectations vs. Reality
  • Visa and insurance details
  • Costs related to studying in the Australia and NZ
  • Accommodation
  • Education systems
  • Funding opportunities
  • Term dates & how the academic year works
  • Travel opportunities
  • Universities we’re partnered with in that region
  • Q&A

We’ll also be joined by students who studied in Australia and New Zealand last year and will give you an honest insight into their time abroad. Places are limited so book yours now!
