snow&wind

Now there is something I’m not looking all that forward to: snow + wind… not to mention my incapabilities on a bike… Oh well, exchange is all about trying something new right?!

Post-acceptance session
With UoC, it’s a nomination process, so we didn’t get to start filling in our application yesterday. However, I did get an email from my Exchange Officer (EO) today saying that nomination has started, and so now we’re just waiting to get the email from UoC giving us access to the application form.

Something that really interested me that my EO mentioned was the Beyond UTS: International Development Program (BUILD). Applications open on Monday, so I’ve been figuring out a nice response to the question. I think it would be a good opportunity to branch about ‘beyond’ the academic life of uni, something that I know I get so caught up with sometimes… So I’m pretty excited for that.

A couple of dates for the diary:

  • UoC application due to UTS: 18 March
  • Global Fair: 22 April 10-2pm
  • Pre-departure workshop: 28 May 2-5pm (I think I have class…?? Oh well!)

And something to do, which I guess I just kind of did…

Scholarship application
As usual, I’m a pro at procrastinating. I realised the criteria aren’t exactly the same as the exchange application, so I’m in the midst of writing up my 1000 words. I’m wondering whether I should use this blog as an ‘activity’ associated with being an ambassador for UTS… Hmm… I’m certainly intending to keep it up to date while I’m away, and I guess it could be useful for prospective exchange students who are thinking about going to Denmark or Copenhagen. Now there’s a thought I should keep in mind while writing this…

Language classes
I just remembered that the Danish Church is over in Pennant Hills. Apparently they run a Danish language course, and I’ve wondered whether it would be worthwhile to get into that, just to the New Beginner’s Course (well, that would be all I have time for, since the current term has already started…) We’ll see how that goes, then maybe I might not have to get to UoC so early for the Danish language courses there, although I guess that would be a good way to meet people too. Decisions, decisions, decisions!

Each post I make makes me end up thinking of a lot of other things, making me even more and more excited!
Sometimes, I still cannot believe that all this is happening!
