I chose UQ because I had heard so many good things about Brisbane! It has a warmer climate than Sydney or Melbourne, and is so close to the Gold and Sunshine Coasts. UQ has enabled me to take journalism courses, which my host university does not have, and I am hoping to come back for my Masters next year. I lived at Union College last semester, which was the best decision! I absolutely loved it. I instantly made friends, and there were always social events going on.
