"Cross-country skiing, ice fishing, sledding across frozen rivers, and even completing a university subject in dog sledding were just some of the highlights of my CSU exchange experience in Canada.
"A major highlight was joining a class on a nine-day dog sledding expedition in Minnesota, USA. The nine days were spent sledding across frozen lakes with day temperatures down to -17C.
"I still found time to complete five subjects while on exchange, which included Outdoor Skills and Theory II, Dog Sledding, Outdoor Education Practices, Nature Based Tourism, and Expedition Management.
"The international study experience made me really appreciate university life and truly made me excited to come back to Australia to continue my learning. I now have direction and purpose in my life, something that I may have never discovered unless I went on exchange. I would encourage any student to build up the courage and definitely go on exchange."
