Amna Pervez - Pakistan
I completed Business Studies in Pakistan and worked for a private company for two years. I realized it was time for me to upgrade my degree and career path. I chose Australia based on its quality of education and the opporutnities it will provide me to grow. Australian education experience enriched me academically, socially and culturally.
Course: Masters of Marketing Communications
Institute: Monash University
Location: Melbourne, Victoria
Studying at Monash University for my Masters degree was truly a life changing experience. As a Marketing Communications student, I was always taught to be creative, innovative and think out of the box. My degree provided me focused and career-oriented training which gave me confidence to step into any kind of job market. Monash has world-class faculty and most modern technology which substantially enhanced my education experience.
Coming from a third-world country, I had serious apprehensions about adjusting to a new environment. However, due to friendly and vibrant culture of Australia, I felt nothing but welcomed. Australian universities pay special attention to assisting international students adjust into the Australian culture. From finding accommodation to choosing the university courses to travelling through the country during semester breaks, I was provided with appropriate guidance at every point.
Living in a city like Melbourne was an incredible experience by itself. Its rich culture of art, museums and theatre never made me feel bored or homesick.
Back in my homeland now and working for an Australian employer, I will always feel part of Australia which made me the person I am.
