I have been looking into various study abroad options I have and am curious, if you could study in any city around the world for a year, where would it be?

I have looked into it, however, my school offers two week programs for this in humanities courses. We would travel with a group and a sponsor. However should I decide to do this, here are my choices;

Bahamas
Canada
Germany

Love to do the law program in Heidelberg, although I just got accepted for a full year next year at Humboldt in Berlin. I am perfectly happy with that.

I am getting ready to study abroad next year. I would love to go anywhere Australia, Asia, Israel even Africa. But really in Australia you are stuck with staying there and maybe an excursion or two to New Zealand and another Pacific island, Asia is great but there is the language barrier and a huge culture shock. Africa is not on my top list even though I would not mind spending a few months there some day. (probably wont happen) So there is South America but I live in Miami I already live in South America.
Europe is the place to be! I have been to Europe 4 times before and only once to all the other places. So why go to a place I have already been to a good amount of times?
First travel is very easy and cheap, air,train,ferry.
There are a lot of places in a small area but they are all so different.
Everyone speaks English in every country.
Its a lot of fun and a very safe place.
But again best thing about Europe is being able to see so many different places every weekend. Just hop on a train or Easy Jet and go to Rome for the weekend or a Greek Island etc.. Europe has a lot to offer.
I would like to be in Barcelona, Rome, Florence, Athens, Madrid or London. Any of those places and I will be very happy for a few months.

Australia was super popular back when I was an ungrad, but I studied abroad at Oxford - New College. Best nine months of my college career. Miss our college pub with Extra-Cold Guiness.  bigthumbsup

I have to say I agree with you 100 percent. I think I'm leaning towards Italy (Rome or Florence), but anywhere in any of the German speaking countries are in a close second. I still have a bit of time to decide, it is hard to say.

I have to say I'm really happy where I'm at now, but the opportunity to live anywhere I want for a year, only having to worry about furthering my education, is an opportunity too good to pass up. Realistically I may never have the opportunity to live abroad again.

I spent a year in Hamburg - it was absolutely fantastic. I didn't even choose to go there, I was sent because we needed to fill places at the University there, and I didn't give good enough reasons for my other choices.

But it is an absolutely first-class city, full of great people - the only downer is the shitty weather... Big grin

Good luck!

I was very lucky in that my University made it amazingly easy to do Study Abroad programs, so I wound up doing 2! I spent time in South Africa (We divided our class time between Wits, Stellenbosch, and Cape Town) and Geneva, and I would recommend either one. South Africa was an amazing place to vist, and while Geneva may not be the most exciting city in terms of night life, it is beautiful, and has great rail links- we all got Eurail Passes, and I got to see pretty much all of Western Europe, and a good chunk of Eastern Europe as well.

Good luck with the choice, and remember: HAVE FUN!  bigthumbsup

I studied in China in 2007 and it was cool. We traveled all around and spend a lot of time in Beijing. If I did it again I'd base myself in a smaller Chinese city because any metro area is so "international" it's hard to get a feel for the country at large. xian, Quindao, or other smaller cities were much more interesting than Beijing.

My next choices would be in Germany, Sweden, or Costa Rica/Belize.

Well I just got back from a 6 month student exchange, which I guess is pretty similar to a study abroad program.

I want to leave again though, if I could go again I'd love to go somewhere in Africa, probably just South Africa.

My exchange was a FANTASTIC experience if not always fun and at times horrendous, I'd still do it again.

If you were in Australia you would not get bored with being here at all. There are so many different places and things to do. Skiing, desert, hiking, rainforests, reef, caves, mountains, surf and very different and diverse cities each with their own charm and appeal.

There is nothing bad at all with being stuck in Australia we literally have EVERYTHING.
