When I decided to enrol in a Master of Computer Science, I researched the pros and cons of the top universities across the globe. I decided on Australia because Monash University has a fantastic computer science department and several merit-based scholarships for international students. Melbourne is a beautiful city and a growing hub for software companies, which made the decision that much easier.

The first few weeks were consumed with academic administration and getting used to the rhythm of daily life. The university made the transition easier with an extensive orientation session, which answered many of my questions. I was lucky to find fellow postgrads as flatmates, who were very welcoming and took me to the beach on my first day.

In my second year, I had the opportunity to do a one-year research project. I was fortunate to work with a very accomplished and knowledgeable research adviser and to work with The Alfred Hospital.

The university has a great combination of teaching excellence, a relevant and well-defined curriculum, flexibility for specialisation, industry partnerships and, most importantly, the willingness to help you reach your goals.

There are a number of interesting options I could pursue in research or industry. Whichever path I choose, I am confident my two years here have given me a solid foundation to build a successful career.
