Where 12:30 is half-noon and fries are called chips

You don't always get to experience your first year and your last year twice; and that's not because I failed! Here in England, typical University and College programs last three years. Coming here on exchange in my third year, I got to adapt to the lifestyles of both the graduating students and the new incoming "freshers" as they would say, as it would be my last year of studies in the UK, but also my first year at University.

Keep your eyes open and abandon your fears

After three months of living here I decided it's about that time I begin reflecting on my experience at the Nanyang Technological University, in the vibrant city-state of Singapore. My fellow classmate who's studying at NUS, a sister university in Singapore, covered the basics of food culture and academic life in the city…errr….country, but a bonus of studying at Nanyang Tech is that the food is cheaper! NTU also boasts a gazillion choices so there's always something here to eat for everyone - and if you're a midnight-snacker, there is a 24/7 hawker center less than a 10 minute walk from campus.

Hello from Holland

GBDA study abroad

My name is Josh Cobaschi and I am a third year student currently on my study abroad term at Tilburg University in the Netherlands. I have been here for two months now and they have been some of the most incredible months of my life. At first it was a little intimidating feeling like I had just been immersed into a completely new world. And being that it is my first time in Europe it look a little getting adjusted to, but I have loved every moment of it. This post will just give you a little insight into some of the things I have been up to in the recently.

The bare NUS-essities

Greetings from Singapore – lah

After months on end of waiting and the million and one papers that were processed, I have finally made it to Singapore. The fear of being deported for not having the right form or fee, has now been put at ease – or at least I hope.

It's hard to believe that two months have passed by so quickly; thankfully I have learned a few tricks here and there to ease that transition from country to country.

I've talked to a few of you, and I know some other GBDA students are considering NUS for their study abroad term. I thought it'd be fun to share with you my NUS-essities (necessities).

A little skip over the pond
