Student Experiences

Raymond Trinh
Bachelor of Applied Science (Exercise Physiology), Semester 2, 2015.
Host City Highlights
Miami Beach, College tailgating, College Parties, College Football, Florida Keys, Miami Clubs.
Uni Life
Greek Life is big, and deciding to join a fraternity is a great way of building relationships. However if Greek life is not for you, there are a ton of different clubs and societies for everyone.
About 4 hours a week, 30 students in a class, weekly assignments, class format was a tutorial setting.
Lots of Mexican food, must try Cuban coffee and food, SHAKE SHACK, FIVE GUYS.
Lived on campus and is highly recommended. Even though it is not the nicest it is very convenient and a great way of meeting people.
Money Matters
$25000, managing funds was quite difficult because Miami is a very expensive city. Did not work whilst studying and you definitely shouldn't.
Getting Around
Public transport is not good however there is a train station right across campus. Uber is the way to go.
Go during the fall if you want the college football/tailgate experience. However if you go during summer, there is the must attend event of ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL.
Top Tips
Miami gives you both the community college experience and the city life. There is always something to do.
