Study In Australia | My Journey As An International Student In Australia
The highs and the lows, the ups, the downs, the silent fears and ecstatic victories are what add charm and flavour to life. Having come from Singapore to pursue a Bachelor of Health Sciences, I can confidently say that choosing to study in Australia has been the best decision I have made.
From the moment I chose to leave my family and country thousands of miles behind, to making new friends in a country on the far edge of the map, it’s been an adventure of sorts with a bagful of priceless memories to reminisce upon and numerous stories to tell.
A practiced smile had masked the fears and gloom I hid in my heart as I waved goodbye to my family and friends. I know that this separation of few feet between us from the glass panel at the airport would only grow. And, there I waited silent and slouched on an economy-class seat, knowing not what lay there before me.
Now when much water has passed under the bridge, I’m sharing my experiences with you all.
Ever since I arrived here, I’ve had to step out from my place of comfort, and crossed over what I had already known and have thought possible. I have taken initiatives to make friends with people from different backgrounds and nationalities. This alone has been an exceptional experience.
Being a health science student at a leading Australia University has been a rollercoaster of experiences. I won’t lie… managing a social life, eating healthy, getting enough sleep, doing assignments, going to lectures, and other community work has been challenging. But, given that all of this is just for four years, I might as well put up with it, right?
Speaking of the course and college, I love all the work that we do. In fact, the course structure and pattern prepares you for the industry.
I really enjoy using the state of the art labs, learning from the qualified academics and meeting highly motivated technicians. They assist you in bringing your imagination to life- literally.
Frankly speaking, time is money, and if the wisest use of it is an investment, it’s equally vital to reassess what we invest our time in. For me, I take pride in investing my time on people, studies and personal development, and that’s why I had choose to study overseas.
I am confident that this will take me to where I want to be someday.
