I chose to study in Australia because its universities and colleges are respected worldwide for their high quality of education and research. Most importantly, the Australian education system promotes innovative, creative and independent thinking in its students. International students also have the opportunity to get valuable work experience off campus with local companies and businesses. Lastly, Australian qualifications are recognised internationally, making you highly sought after by employers everywhere.

The MBA program at the Sydney Business School (SBS) has broadened my academic horizons. It has also enriched my managerial and problem-solving skills. The academic staff have been encouraging and made my experience enjoyable and productive. As an international student, I have really enjoyed the multicultural element at the SBS. The MBA program allows you to develop a range of key managerial competencies, focusing on Australian, Asian and global business issues.

Wollongong is a relaxed coastal city on the beautiful south coast of New South Wales. What I like most about Wollongong is the comfortable rural living style mixed with sophisticated modern facilities in a lively and growing multicultural scene. I have found it an incredible place to live and study. On summer mornings I’ll go for a swim at the beach and study in the afternoons. In winter, I like go bike riding around Mt Ousley, where you’ll often see kangaroos.

Australia is one of the most multicultural nations in the world, offering a diversity of experiences and one of the highest living standards in the world. I’ve found it interesting to see how the West and East
get along together in Australia. I strongly recommend living and studying in Australia because of its high quality of education and good lifestyle. Studying in Australia has been the experience of a lifetime for me!

I have always lived and studied close to home, so coming to Australia was a unique experience. As uncertain as I was to travel to a new country, I was nonetheless excited to face the challenges and ventured on my journey to Australia to pursue my undergraduate studies five years ago. Invariably, international students go through some hardship adapting to a foreign culture and new lifestyle — but I haven’t looked back since.
Australia is a beautiful country — vibrant with a unique diversity affording peace and harmony, even in its vastly multicultural society. Further, the education system is highly regarded and recognised as one of the best in the world.
I am now pursuing my postgraduate studies at Australian Catholic University (ACU). I chose ACU because it offered a double Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree, which was unique when compared to other university programs. ACU also has great support services for students, and under this regime I am currently employed at ACU to facilitate and support other students. The lecturers at ACU are also friendly and helpful. The courses offered are both academic and innovative while being practical and useful.
Not everyone is privileged or has the chance to study abroad and find success, but if you can, I highly recommend everyone to take it! I am lucky to have met people from different parts of the world and some are surely going to be friends for life.
My advice to students interested in studying in Australia is to first research your course, university and the city in which you want to live. Then soak up the relaxed culture and lifestyle and enjoy everything Australia has to offer! I encourage you to follow every rainbow until you find your dream! You will make memories for a lifetime.
