Before applying for a postgraduate, I researched student life in Australia. I found that Australia was hailed as one of the best places to live while you learn.

Studying here has been the best experience of my life. When I first arrived I shared a room with another student, because I love to get to know people and learn about their culture. Room-share is great, low-budget accommodation, but the university offers a range of other options in their residential buildings and apartments.

There is a great culture of being able to talk to your professor or lecturer about something you don’t understand. If you need help with academic situations or personal problems, the university provides free counselling. At Monash, there is a postgraduate association and a student association to help you out.
