11 STUDY ABROAD Studying for a semester or a year overseas is a great way to enrich your degree and university experience. It is not only a great opportunity for travel but also to learn another culture, make new friends and perhaps even learn another language. The subjects that you study at an overseas university or college can be credited towards your Avondale degree. For information regarding your credit options, please see your Course Convenor before signing up for an exchange. With 124 Adventist universities and colleges in 70 countries worldwide, the opportunity for an exchange whist studying at Avondale is extensive. Avondale graduate Alana Brown was wanting an overseas adventure, so half-way through her degree, she decided to embark on an international exchange to Canada.
