dude, I was going to do this but I've run into money issues.
Alright, our semesters end in may right?
There semesters start around Jun/July I think and end at the end of October/November.
It gives you enough time to fly there, and chill for a few weeks. You get to have two winters and you could prob ski a good bit early season there. You get a week or two off before finals in October. You can ski then, although its a little late in the season. The great thing about it is you can come back to the states around November for the beginning of our season and not have school until January. you can chill at crested butte and ski for free early season, or buy a pass, work whatever.
This was my plan. I was going to go to the University of Melbourne. Go to http://www.unimelb.edu.au/
fuck it. I found this for you
So end of July to December. Look at the way the semester is laid out. It's a lot different than ours. It also looks like there's some programs for international students where you can come into the university mid semester...
Message me or ask me on here if you have anymore questions. My sister studied abroad there during their summer and loved it(Now she's getting a second masters at the university of Otago in Dunedin, NZ). She didnt really use some international program or anything. She didn't stay in international student housing. She found a room with a bunch of aussies and met and hung out with them instead of a bunch of other americans and asians. If you study abroad, especially by yourself, I would do it like this.
Fuck it I still want to do this.
