Or spend a semester in Fiji, studying in literal paradise. Of course, you can also check into what programmes your university offers as well.
Oceania lifestyle and culture
Oceania is home to a wide variety of cultures and people groups, from modern, international cities to sparsely populated national park areas and indigineous people and cultures. Many places in the South Pacific do share a warm, hospitable attitude and you’ll probably find the lifestyle of many places to be quite relaxed. If you’re curious about the culture of a new place, just ask a local! Generally, people will be quite friendly and happy to share their lifestyle and culture with you.
Exploring Oceania on a student budget
Even if you’re stuck with a small budget, Oceania is a great region to explore. Many of the flights from Australia within the region are less expensive than long-haul flights elsewhere. Along with that, you’ll find both a thriving hostel culture and plenty of free things to do, which can help you save tons on your trip. Try hanging out in smaller cities that still have tons to offer, like Christchurch or Queenstown, or head to a National Park for some time in nature that won’t break the bank. Even the South Pacific islands can be doable on a budget if you plan ahead!
