Flinders University (Adelaide)

Flinders University (Adelaide) is an exchange destination for Utrecht University Bachelor students of the faculty of Humanities in Adelaide, Australia.

"I followed some very interesting courses that I could only have followed in Australia. These courses introduced me to Aboriginal people and their cultures. Being someone from Europe I realised how little we know of this and the incredible expertise Flinders University had with regards to Aboriginal Studies." - experience from a former exchange student
