Johnny Xu, China

Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Law

I am very glad to have chosen Monash University to study law. At the end of Year 12, I was contemplating either choosing commerce or commerce/law. It was quite a difficult decision because I knew that it would change my future life in Australia. My first impression of Monash was how large the Clayton campus was. The university provides a comfortable environment for students, and when I didn't have a class, I spent most of my time studying in the Law Library or catching up with my friends in the Campus Centre. I have met many people and made a few friends, including a few international students. I could tell that many international students enjoy their lives in Australia. I very much enjoy my lectures and tutorials. The lecturers and tutors I have met so far were inspiring, intelligent and were always ready to help students in need. I am pleased to be one of the many international students to study at Monash.
