Georgina felt that Melbourne had lots to offer and was a safe city to study in.
RMIT University, Melbourne
I personally felt that Melbourne had more to offer than other countries, especially with security. My parents were also happy that I chose Melbourne, they felt like they wouldn’t need to worry about my safety.
Georgina had doubts about whether Foundation Studies was the right choice but it has turned out to be a great decision. “Before I enrolled I thought Foundation was going to be unsupportive to my career, but it turned out to be better than what I had in mind. I learnt more about writing and researching which has been really helpful. The best part is that I now know what to expect in my bachelor program.”
“To be honest I had doubts about whether it was the right choice, but in no time I had so many friends, most of them from different backgrounds, we were all in the same situation of being new, so we could find our feet together. I thought the language barrier would be an issue considering most people prefer to communicate in their first language but we all learnt that English was our common ground and our English has improved a lot since arriving. I also made friends through different groups around the university; The Christian Union and the RMIT Hockey club.”
Georgina feels that without a doubt Foundation Studies has been a great decision. “The course has taught me so many things. If I had not of chose Foundation Studies I think I would have got quite a shock when I started my degree. The teachers are great, they all make sure that we learn and that we enjoy our time in Melbourne.”
