What the students say

"Studying at Curtin University had made me realized the beauty of the city which is located in Miri, Sarawak. The environment in the campus I would say is nature themed whereby you can feel relaxed as you can hear the noises from the birds and trees. Because of that, I tend to focus on my studies easily and I don’t feel rush on everything that I’m doing"- Anna D.

I was looking for a freemover stay abroad through Uniclub and I got some of the best service I have experienced. They took care of all the practicalities, and removed almost all the hassle of work it can be to apply for an exchange stay.

Uniclub and Deni Isic, get my absolute warmest recommendation! I had a dream of coming to Japan that seemed distant and unmanageable, but Deni and the rest of Uniclub have helped me through the whole process.

I have just returned from my exchange stay in Ireland, which would not have been possible if it were not for Uniclub. If you are looking for an exchange as a freemover, then I can not recommend UniClub enough!
