So about a month ago I got back from a short-term scholarship to Singapore, where the Government threw money at me to go study their public housing policy. Today I get an email offering me the chance to apply for another scholarship, this time for 6-12 months, to go anywhere in the overarching Asia-Pacific region. Problem is I have about 3 days to decide whether to apply or not.
Either I'm doing something right, or Tony Abbott sees me as a pressing threat and wants me out of here at any cost
I'm really torn on whether or not to apply; in some ways, it sounds like an awesome opportunity. On the other hand, it sounds somewhat terrifying and I really don't know if I'd want to head overseas and leave my family/friends/girlfriend for up to a year. So I'm asking those of you who have studied overseas, what were the positives and negatives? How did it go for you?
