Student life in Melbourne

Exchange semester in Victoria University, Melbourne

Semester is finished

 

Hi!

This week University ended from my part! Wuhuu! Nah, actually it was not that bad.

Although, my studies started already in July, it feels that time has gone really fast. Luckily, I still have almost two months time to explore Australia and gain new unforgettable memories. I passed all my units with good grades, which will be published later on.

What now? I have the accommodation deal with Unilodge until 1 of December, which means that this can be my base until that day. Before that I am going to travel different cities and parts of Australia. Melbourne is amazing city, but it is just one urban side of this country and do not give the whole picture. This weekend I am going to do trip to Wilsons Promontory National Park with my friends, same kind of like early ones to Grampians and Philipp Islands. These are unique and beautiful landscapes, which are great destinations to do for example one day trip.

We have already booked flight to Perth 10.-17.11 with six of my friends. We are going to stay couple days in Perth and then we will explore the east coast with rented van. I will post about this trip later on when we have returned Melbourne.

Beside trip to Perth, I do not have yet any concrete plans. Just going to go with the flow what ever comes to mind. Perhaps in December, I am going to travel from Melbourne towards North, visiting Canberra and going all the way to Sydney. I am also keen on going to Darwin, Northern Territory of Australia, but we will see.

I have also started to plan and organize things in Finland. I got my internship in Finnish Olympic Committee, which means that I am going to move to Helsinki right away when I arrive to Finland. This means that I have started to search for an apartment, which is painful process from the other side of the world. During the winter I have to also start to plan slowly how I do my thesis (Internship, Thesis and couple courses concerning it are the only things I have left of my studies).

For summary the time here has been a blast and it will still continue for a long time! I will post later on more about what I felt about the studies in here and plenty of more stuff.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask, there has not been too many questions so far!
