Life as an International Student


Before coming to Australia I was quite concerned with racism, but after arriving here I realised that this country is so perse and it is home for everyone, no matter your skin colour or religion.

When I first came here, I was surprised at how friendly Aussies were. I used to do a little bit of walk every early morning, and people would be smiling, waving, or even stopping to have a chat.

Melbourne is a great place to live. There are multiple public transport options, relatively low crime rates and plenty of jobs.

Gradually I have understood the culture, found people to be welcoming and friendly, and I feel more stable.
