Brianna Lehrke, Exchange to Tianjin Normal University, China

Brianna loved meeting new friends from all over the world on her exchange to China in semester 2, 2013.

“I didn’t want to come home by the end of it!”

RMIT Program: Bachelor of Arts (Photography)

Global Program: Exchange

Destination: Tianjin, China

Brianna decided to go on exchange after she heard amazing things about the experience from people within her course at RMIT. While on exchange Brianna stayed at the international dorms, which allowed her to meet a lot of people and travel all around China with them, to places like Shanghair, Hong Kong, Xian, Beijing and Chengdu. The smaller classes at her university also allowed her to build stronger friendships.

Although originally not planning on going to China, Brianna describes her exchange as the “most amazing experience” she had ever had, and would recommend exchange to other students.
