In my (little over) two weeks there, I learned much about global cultures, Music Therapy, and myself, allowing me to become more rounded as a young adult still learning my place in the world.

After completing my trip, I would recommend everyone should participate in a study abroad program. Speaking a second language, planning trips, and living in a completely different country and culture for almost two months allowed me to mature in a way I never would have expected.

Since returning from my trip to Spain, there is one thing I am sure of: everyone should have a study abroad experience!

I decided to study abroad because I knew the experience would be like nothing I had ever done before. I had traveled out of the country once to Costa Rica while in high school. It was an amazing experience but it only lasted 10 days. This was a chance to actually live in another country for a short period of time. I knew it would have a major impact on me and my views of the world in general.

Studying abroad in Melbourne Australia

Posted by Katelyn Flahive on

Studying abroad in Melbourne Australia was one of the most unique experiences I have had. Although my semester program was cut short to only a month due to Covid-19, I was able to grow a lot both professionally and personally during my time abroad. This was my first time ever traveling alone to a country I have never been to. It took months of planning but I knew that it would be all worth it in the end, and I was right.
