Laura Casey, Exchange to Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Netherlands

Since the beginning of her course, Laura knew she wanted to make the most out of the exchange opportunities offered to her.

“Even the most mundane task such as going to the post office became brilliant.”

RMIT Program: Bachelor of Design (Interior Design)

Global Program: Exchange

Destination: Amsterdam, Netherlands

Making the move to study overseas was daunting to Laura, but something she knew she really wanted to do. She describes Amsterdam as a wonderful city to live in, and spent lots of her time riding along the beautiful canals. During her 4 months in Amsterdam she not only found Gerrit Rietveld Academie a great school to study at, but also was part of a school trip to France and travelled to many different places in Europe. Laura made many new friends while overseas, who she hopes to get the opportunity to travel and see again. When asked about her experience on exchange, Laura said she “couldn't have predicted what a brilliant time (she) would have.”
