Please check with the UTS Study Abroad and Exchange team for
WENDELIEN BAKELAAR more information.
There’s a huge exchange student network here
and it’s such a strong community. It’s nice because
it makes you feel at home if you actually recognise
people when you walk to and from university.
I also enjoy the exchange life itself - being able to travel
around and see how different things work. It’s also
beneficial because I want to work abroad in the future, so I
get to see how different universities approach things, which
will be reflected in the business culture of that country too.
