G’day mate, I’m Lulu and I am glad to share with you my experience studying abroad at UTS.

Home University and Country

MCI Management Center Innsbruck (Austria)

Studying

Master in Management, Communication & IT

Favourite place in the world

Tirolean Mountains

A typical day

I moved from the heart of the Alps to living within a five-minute walk to the beach in Sydney. I still can’t believe this will be my home for the next months. Besides studying, I work as a personal trainer at the beach. My day-to-day workplace could definitely be worse! After working I usually hang out at one of the various little cafes and have an Acai Bowl for breakfast.



When I’m not studying you’ll most likely find me.....

At the beach! I often go for a morning surf at Bondi. The people here who surf through the winter are so crazy and dedicated. On weekends, I often have a typical, Australian traditional BBQ with friends in the park.


My favourite thing about my experience abroad so far

The favourite thing about my experience abroad so far, I think, is the people. I have met so many interesting people, it’s crazy; people I would never have met otherwise. I now have friends that come from different countries, speak different languages and hold different beliefs. This forced me to open my mind to different cultures and personalities.

Something I want to tick off my bucket list

There are many places I want to see in Australia. Fraser Islands, Byron Bay, Great Barrier Reef are just some places on my bucket list. After my stay in Australia I will also spend one month in Bali and Lombok. There's nothing more inspiring than breaking free from society's shackles and ticking off the bucket list!
