International student story

NSW's ideal study lifestyle

Rebecca is completing a Bachelor of Paramedicine at Western Sydney University. She knew what to expect in Sydney after visiting 5 years ago.

About Rebecca

When exploring study destinations, Rebecca found NSW offered one of the only paramedicine courses in Australia that accepts international students.

A highlight of living in NSW is living by the beach and enjoying time in the sun. Compared to her experience working as a nurse in her homeland of Austria, Rebecca enjoys the laidback lifestyle and work life balance of NSW. In the future, Rebecca looks forward to settling in Australia and working as a paramedic.

Rebecca’s tips

“You can reach out to education agents from your home country and watch lots of YouTube videos about life in Australia. Lastly, keep an open mind about other cultures.”
