I have the chance to spend my first semester of next year (Year 2) abroad in countries such a Germany, Holland, USA, Canada, Australia.

I'm studying Accounting and Finance at Surrey.

Where would you recommend?

Also, how much more expensive would USA, Canada or Australia be compared to what I would pay in England.

Any other comments are warmly welcomed, thanks in advance.

What cities?
Mannheim, Germany
Amsterdam, Holland
Melbourne or Sydney, Australia
Ontario, Canada

Just re-read the booklet and I'm mistaken about USA, as it is not available for my course!

Australia or Canada. At least try and get out of Europe. I so wish my course would let me go abroad!

I'd choose Sydney - though you'll have to get a PT job, as living costs are substantially higher, but wages are wayyy higher.

Their economy is a lot more buoyant than ours, and never actually went into recession. When I was out there (2011) I was able to find waitressing jobs paying $18-20ph + tips without too much difficulty. You do still have to look - jobs won't come and find you - but they are much more abundant than the UK if you have some form of experience.

Where in Ontario would you be?

You do realize that Ontario is a province (8 times the size of England!) and not a city, so your study abroad experience would depend massively depending on where you are; e.g. a semester abroad in Toronto (the 4th largest city in North America) would be incredibly different to a semester in London, Thunder Bay, Waterloo, etc. (smaller towns)
