Student Details

Juthaporn - Thailand

Australian universities are very supportive of international students. It’s a safe country and not too far from my home. The people enjoy a high standard of living, they have a professional way of working and they are open-minded to foreigners. It’s a great place to stay.

Course: Master of Advanced Engineering (Mechanical Engineering)
Institute: Monash University
Location: Melbourne, Victoria

Melbourne is a lively city and convenient to travel around, so I don’t have any difficulties living here. But as my native language is not English, it took me a while to adjust my listening, speaking and writing skills in class. I would recommend overseas students to enrol in an English course before the start of semester.

The library at Monash had plenty of resources and free courses to help me improve my speaking and writing skills. I also received great support from academic staff, who helped me find an engineering project that suited my interests.
