How I balanced study with lifestyle in Sydney

Maitry is completing a Master of Medical Biotechnology at the University of Technology Sydney.

About Maitry

Living in Sydney was a dream of Maitry’s, as she was always a “beachy person who loved city living”. She chose to study at UTS because it’s Australia’s youngest university, it’s located in the city, and it has a strong reputation in biomedical research.

With beaches, mountains, city and nightlife, Maitry believes NSW is truly a destination for everyone. She loved experiencing the city turn into a wonderland of lights during Vivid Sydney.

Looking forward, Maitry aspires to pursue a career in biomedical engineering and business in Australia, while exploring opportunities to kickstart her own startup to support the welfare of NSW communities.

Maitry’s tips

“Think about why you are here and what you want to do and explore the opportunities at your university. Also, learn more about the economy and job opportunities in NSW by attending programs like the NSW Jobs Connect for International Students.”
