Hi, my name is Sarine and I studied at The University of Queensland.
Hi, my name is Sarine and I studied a Bachelor of Commerce at The University of Queensland.

Why did you choose to study at UQ?

I chose to study abroad to reach a higher academic level and enrich my global experience. Not only is UQ one of the Group of Eight and Universitas 21, but its great contribution to research and academic development is also well known.

Brisbane is also a high-profile multicultural city, famous for its nice natural and social environment. Therefore, studying at UQ was my optimal choice.

What is the best thing about your program at UQ?

I’m a final year student in commerce, majoring in accounting. Accounting is a highly practical major, so I appreciate that UQ sets our program in accordance with academic requirements and professional certificates curriculum (e.g. CPA).

Thanks to this support, the way to become an accredited accountant and have that qualification recognised around the world has become much easier. During my studies, UQ has provided various support, ranging from peer-assisted study to employability workshops, which assists us in both academic and career development.

While enrolled at UQ, have you undertaken an internship, volunteering position or industry placement?

In early July, I received a UQ Winter Research Scholarship as an undergraduate research assistant in the Business School. I am extremely grateful that I was given this precious opportunity to be involved in academic research and to mingle with the top academic staff and students in the school.

Have you been involved in any social activities or extra-curricular activities at UQ? 

Besides my studies, I am also a Student Ambassador for UQ BEL (Faculty of Business, Economics and Law), a UQ Student Leader and a member of several student associations, such as FMAA, ACYA and KISS.

Through these jobs and memberships, I can be actively involved in university events, make a contribution to the UQ experience and mingle with international friends.

What have you discovered, either personally or academically through your studies at UQ?

Studying abroad is like taking an adventure. While taking this adventure, I have been rewarded with self-generated courage, broadened my international horizons and had the opportunity to learn more about the world and myself. Treasure your time at UQ – it will be the most invaluable treasure of your whole life!
