Student Testimonials

Laura Thwaites

I found the semester one, 2011, 'Chandigarh Project' and insightful and educational experience. For me travelling abroad is an important aspect of personal and professional growth. The opportunity to visit Northern India with Christopher Vernon and my fellow students allowed me to develop a greater understanding of India's ancient culture and exciting history of landscape architectural practice. The study abroad trip was valuable to me from both a landscape architectural standpoint and as a personal confidence and skills building opportunity.  The study tour has been a highlight of my time at UWA as is an experience one that I will remember long past graduation. The financial support that I received for the Chandigarh Project made this adventure possible for most of our group and we are grateful for the assistance it provided. I would not hesitate to share my experiences or to encourage others to participate in a UWA run study tour as these cross-cultural experiences are both rare and incredibly eye opening
