I have a daughter and I love playing games and going toy shopping.
What has been your favourite experience in NSW?
My favourite experience in New South Wales is living in a safe and welcoming community. Studying and living in New South Wales makes me feel safe and secure anytime and anywhere. You feel comfortable to go everywhere as it is one of the safest cities in the world. I live in Parramatta next to Parramatta River. The river is beautiful beyond words. My daughter and I love going to the park just next to the river. It is like our own private river-side entertainment space. I also love the fact that the universities in NSW are so accessible and approachable. The services are good and the complaint resolution is even better.
I was quite nervous when I first came to New South Wales but now I find myself totally at ease. A big credit for this goes to the wonderful hospitality that I received everywhere I went in NSW. Be it my University, my workplace, my accommodation, everywhere I felt welcomed. My experience so far as an international student has been amazing. I love every bit of my stay here and I am pretty sure that it will be the case for most of the other international students.

Come with an open mind and you will love the experience. New South Wales is one of the best places in Australia to live and study. You will find plenty of good people to help and support you. Also, the university support for international students is extremely well-managed and your issues and concerns will be heard and solved. You may speak to international student advisors or international student service officers at your university when you face any issues. The diversity here is amazing and I have friends from almost all parts of the world. The university support and the welcoming state make you feel inclusive and I would highly recommend choosing NSW as the study destination.

Since the time I came to NSW, my world has been different. I am exposed to a lot of new and exciting things on a daily basis. It is so wonderful to see how welcoming and warm people are in the state of New South Wales. Everyone is so open and friendly to offer help, sometimes I even think it is surreal!
