Vicky made the courageous move from Bachelor of Arts graduate to Master of Professional Accounting student in 2019. Read more to learn Vicky’s story about being an international student at Charles Darwin University’s Waterfront campus in the Northern Territory.

Originally from a small city in China’s Guangxi Province, Vicky arrived in Australia in 2014 feeling equal parts excited and nervous: excited about what her new life in Australia would hold, and nervous because it was her first time leaving her home city and parents. After completing an Arts Honours degree, Vicky said she decided to take the leap and applied for a Global Achiever Award Scholarship to study a postgraduate Accounting degree with CDU.


"Studying at such a modern university while being surrounded by nature and exploring the local Indigenous culture has been a wonderful experience."

Vicky said the big change in study area – from Arts to Accounting – has presented some challenges along the way.

"Everything can seem hard when you first start, but it will become easier and easier as you keep doing it," Vicky said. "You just need to believe in yourself, study hard and use any and all resources available to you."
