Charlotte Rasche on her semester abroad
"I'm currently on my semester abroad in Perth at the University of Western Australia. Choosing UWA was mostly a spontaneous gut feeling decision as I had only considered it the day before submitting my choices. And even though it was not even my first choice, coming here has turned out to be an incredible experience so far that I wouldn't want to miss - sometimes things happen for a reason! While I enjoy the stunning campus every single time I walk across it, it's also great to live outside the residential colleges and embrace Perth's beach life. Apart from the great opportunities that the university offers in terms of science courses, I'm not going to lie, being able to see the incredible nature of WA is probably one of best parts of my stay here! I did a road trip during spring break which left me with the best memories and let me bond with great people, creating some lasting friendships!"
