Making strong connections with local students as they often do not have time/interest
Controlling my desire to travel more
Missing my family and friends
Living Experiences Housing:
As part of the online application to NTU there was an application to be provided with on-campus housing in student dorms. The application made it very clear that only 40% of students would be successful with getting on-campus accommodation but upon arriving to Singapore it became evident that most if not all Australian, Canadian and American exchange students were given on-campus accommodation.
The best aspect of living on-campus was the ability to walk to class literally 5-10 mins from my doorstep to classroom.
One of the strangest things with matching subjects with NTU was the different year structure.
The hardest thing about NTU academically was the fact they did not provide grade feedback of in-session assessments.
