Over the hills and far away...

So, I'm currently in the process of applying to the University of Manchester for semester one next year. My plan was to use this blog as a way to keep friends and family up to date why I'm away. I figured I may as well start getting into the habit of posting regularly now because January really is only just around the corner.

So, I thought I'd start with a progress update. At this point I am one document away from submitting my application online. I have both my Australian and British passports so I'm not going to be restricted by the limitations of student visas in terms of how long I can be in the country either side of the semester. The next big decision I have to make is accommodation. I need to make sure I get my application in as soon as possible since the university doesn't guarantee accommodation for semester-long exchange students.

That's really all I have for now. I'll be back when I have another update. I think I might also use this space to formulate a 'must-see' travel list, which could honestly turn into quite an extensive list.
