Why did you choose to study in Australia, and specifically at UQ?

I chose UQ to first study my master’s degree because UQ offered the degree which I really wanted to study and had well known academics in the area. Also, UQ is one of the best universities in Australia.

Is studying in Australia what you expected and why?

Yes, UQ provided me great opportunities to develop my academic skills and knowledge. This is why I decided to do my PhD at UQ after completing my master’s degree.

People in Brisbane are very friendly and welcoming. I always appreciate the local community for being so kind and welcoming to international students.

What are the best things about your program at UQ?

I am currently doing my PhD so this is probably very different from coursework degrees, but doing PhD at the UQ is probably the best choice for many international students. As the research oriented university, students are able to access a broad range of resources and gain support not only from their school but also form the graduate school and student centres.

What advice would you give people from other countries about studying at UQ? 

I believe choosing university is a difficult decision. If possible, I recommend potential students to visit UQ campus before deciding on a university. I’m very confident to say that once you enter the UQ campus, you can feel this university’s rich history and great academic and multicultural atmosphere.

Learn to see the potential of the world. Gain the knowledge to make it better.
