Tips and advice from our students

Ushmi - Mumbai to Melbourne

The next thing I knew, I was on a plane to Melbourne. It was scary and over-whelming when I first got here. New faces, new streets, different food, found myself lost for a moment but then I thought to myself, coming here was my dream, I am here. What am I afraid of?

Jane - Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne

After finishing my undergraduate degree in Malaysia and working in HR and logistics I became very interested in marketing and branding more specifically. That’s why I decided to study a Master of Marketing at RMIT.

From Singapore to UQ - living the dream

As a student from Singapore, I chose to pursue my journalism degree at the University of Queensland. Studying abroad helped me deal with the challenges I faced as I took on different roles and responsibilities in my career.

DePaul University - a learning experience

I always knew I wanted to study at DePaul University and I worked hard on my grades. I got a scholarship from the university which makes life easier for me in Chicago.

Studying in the USA with a scholarship

I wanted to come to the USA because it offers the best education in the world. I received a scholarship of USD 5,000 because I had a 3.5 GPA in Sri Lanka. This helps me enjoy my college life in the USA as a sophomore.

Feeling at home in the USA

The moment I stepped into the main campus of Western Michigan University, I felt like this was my new home. It was so beautiful.

Embracing the study abroad experience in the USA

It was scary at first when I arrived in the USA, only because I was in a different country away from my home, on my own. It became easier when I arrived in Chicago and tried to set myself up in the city.
