Gemma Black - La Trobe University, Melbourne
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO GO ON EXCHANGE?
I knew that I wanted to experience nursing practice in another country and that by doing an exchange I would be able to gain a significant amount of knowledge, skill and technique that I would be able to bring home to Australia. I also love travelling and this was the perfect opportunity to broaden my horizons, meet new people of different nationalities and flourish as an individual.
WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT JÖNKÖPING UNIVERSITY?
The student life is amazing, with plenty of events for both regular and exchange students. The Kick Off week was lots of fun and the festival at the end was definitely the highlight for me.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MEMORY?
Swimming in the lake with my friends, plus all my travel adventures!
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND EXCHANGE STUDIES TO OTHER STUDENTS?
Personally, nursing and caring for people is my passion – so being able to continue studying my passion overseas is something I will cherish forever. I would highly recommend doing an exchange to all students – it’s an incredible opportunity to gain independence and get a different perspective on your studies and future career.
