My name is Felicia Buday Kourie and I'm studying nursing at Jönköping University. Since I was a kid I have always wanted to work in another country abroad to experience a new country and a new culture, and to also get more experience in my future career. So when I started at JU and I saw that I now had the chance to study abroad I thought that this was a great opportunity for me. When it was time to choose what country I wanted to apply to it was a no brainer for me. I have always wanted to travel to Australia and now I got the chance to both study there and travel. When I got my acceptance letter I was so excited, but I knew that I had a ton of things to do before I could book my ticket. There was endless of paperwork's and doctor’s appointments. A tip if you are going to do an exchange somewhere is to start with the application process earlier, and look at what vaccines you need to take for your placements even before you have started to apply to your chosen university, because there are some vaccines that you need to take 6 months before leaving. Something to think about is that everything you need to do is your own responsibility and you need to do everything alone and look everything you need to know up. And also save a lot of money so that you could travel around in Australia and in countries close by, because it is not every day that you are at the other side of the world.
