Foreign exchange to USA for (half) a year as an undergraduate in UKWatch
I would like to get some advice on Universities abroad, and what they're like. I'm ecstatic about the idea of studying abroad near the coast, warm weather (unlike England), seeing great sights, getting drunk, and having a really interesting culture. Just having the time of my life basically! As you can see, location is important.
I also would like to study in an area with very well spoken English as I am not bilingual (obviously this is huge and may rule out some countries).
It's also important to note I am looking for a good standard of education (King's is 10th in UK for Geography for example).
USA: University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of North Carolina, University of California
Australia: Monash University, University of Melbourne, Australian National University (Canberra)
New Zealand: University of Auckland
Hong Kong: Hong Kong University
Singapore: National University of Singapore
Brunei: Universiti Brunei Darussalam (for one semester only)
It's important to note I have left out University of Toronto, University of Washington (Seattle), and University of British Columbia because I was unsure of location, but if the culture and people are great. I don't care about the weather.
I know it's a lot of information to ask for, but I would really appreciate any advice given! Thank you.
Need more help on going postgrad?
In terms of prestigiousness, University of California is the highest ranking. North Carolina, Wisconsin Madison and Washington are all pretty prestigious, but all the University of California colleges are very "s****y" Also, if you're looking for good weather, California's got it. Plus, if want to party, that's where to go.
