"The UCLA Summer Study Abroad Program was my own 'American dream'. In essence, the experience created a microcosm of the greater United States, and confirmed America's values, the nation's greatness, and its contradictions. Being given the opportunity to study in the United States placed my understanding of the country on a whole new level. It provided a perspective that is simply not possible in Australia"
Blair McVicar, Bachelor of Political, Economic and Social Sciences
"The UCLA program was the best experience of my life and it introduced me to a new world of opportunities. Attending UCLA is everything you imagine an American college experience to be and more. It truly will be the best thing you do at university. This program allowed me to fulfill my dream of studying in the US while developing strong, lasting friendships with my Sydney cohort and international students. I have developed lifelong connections in America that will aide in my future plans of working and living in the US. Anything can happen in Los Angeles, it's truly a city of dreams!"
Cassidy Loane, Bachelor of Arts
"The UCLA Study Abroad Program gave me the opportunity, not only to study at one of the best universities in the United States, but also to experience the Californian summer at its height. Using L.A. as our base, we'd spend the weekends jetting up and down the West Coast, making it back just in time for class and, of course, the vibrant campus social life. I think some of us never really left UCLA - many of the Sydney Uni students were back there in January!"
