Tell us about your experience studying in NSW
I always said if I get to study overseas, Sydney would be my first choice. At the moment my journey has started with online classes. At first I was afraid I would not receive the support I need, but I found I had access to a wide range of materials such as additional lessons, the library and support classes provided by the University. Online study was one of the best experiences to prepare myself for travelling to Sydney to continue my studies face to face. The school is so supportive and I love every class I have. I am looking forward to face-to-face learning and seeing my tutor and friends.

What has been your favourite experience in NSW?
Whilst studying at Sydney University I have made a lot of good friends. Although online, we have shared our interests, culture and experiences with one another. I love being with them because we can learn so much from each other and then grow the friendship when we meet in person. It will be great to have friends when I get there, even though I haven't met them in person yet.
What advice do you have for other international students?
Australia is not only about education. In Australia, you will experience new things which you have never tried before. You gain knowledge from a wide range of different people indifferent cultures and if you choose Australia to further your study, you are on the right track in terms of education, lifestyle, people, opportunity, and career. It is beyond what you can imagine.
