Hi, my name is Sarah Loewy, and I studied a Bachelor of Laws combined with a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies majoring in France.
When I was doing my research for degrees, I realised that UTS was the only university that offered a mandatory study abroad year, and for me this really appealed to me because it means your study abroad year is already built into your study plan, and it really takes the stress out of exchange.
So my exchange experience was that I was living in a French city called Ren.
So I lived in a rickety old 3-story mansion with 6 other French roommates, on the canal in the centre of town, which was a really unforgettable experience.
I’m still in the final year of my degree, however I have been able to undertake some significant work experience since coming back.
When I was on exchange I actually interviewed for the law firm at which I currently work via video link from their Paris office, and I’ll continue to work there after I graduate, which I’m very excited about.
So I think that an International Studies degree really is only limited by your imagination.
There are so many different things you can do with it.
