Study abroad?

Hey,

anyone have any experience with any study abroad programs? I've been thinking about it, so has the girl, It'd be pretty cool if we could go somewhere similar during that semester...

I've always wanted to go to australia or new zealand, and last semester we had a guest lecture by some folks from new zealand, pretty interesting stuff they are doing related to landscape architecture...

anyways, just looking for info, advice, things to consider, from y'all.

my only problem is that whatever program I do will have no direct credit to my major, but something like horticulture or plannning or some art would be entirely useful knowledge to have, and I'm told the experience alone is worth it...

None. No experience whatsoever. But do it anyway. It's the best time of your life. My girl's in Espana, I'm in Britain. Close enough, but far enough.


edit: take an art history course. I believe there's one in Siena, Italy, or Rome, Italy. I know there are others too. You could probably appeal that it's a class on classical architecture, and get credit for it. I appealed that all my medieval literature last year in Florence was history, and they accepted it

Spent a year in Europe doing the study abroad thing (Florence, Italy). Well worth it just for the experience.

If you wanted to actually find something in your field, I know you said you don't want to do Europe, but that would probably be the place to go with all of the formal gardens in France, Germany, Austria, and Italy.

No matter where you go though, you shouldn't regret it....unless you study somewhere like Siberia.

i spent several months at a monastery in Italy in a history/philosophy study program. An amazing expreience. If you get an opportunity to study overseas, definetly go for it.

A friend of mine just got back from Korea where he and his gf taught english as part of their master's program. That might be a possibility, trade english lessons for school/study time. They loved it.

Do it, you won't regret it
