Queensland has the right mix of great weather, nature at your doorstep and city life without having the hustle and bustle of Sydney or Melbourne. Where I am located in the Scenic Rim it is just a short drive to the Glasshouse Mountains, Noosa and the Sunshine Coast. A quick trip in the other direction offers white sand beaches of the Gold Coast and the mountains in the Gold Coast Hinterland.
Murdoch has provided me with the platform through my internship unit to gain hands-on experience. This experience is priceless in helping me achieve a job and is a pedestal towards which I have taken a step in the right direction.
Being an international student, I've always wanted to study abroad for my personal and professional growth. After visiting a lot of universities in Queensland, I felt that Griffith had opportunities that could bring me closer to achieving my personal goals.
I chose Murdoch because of its strength. For a person like me who wants to know more about his field of study, Murdoch creates a way for me to interact and build networks with other experts in the world.
I feel like it was just yesterday as a 19-year-old I arrived on the Gold Coast from Abu Dhabi with three suitcases and a mix of emotions. I am proud to say I’m a Griffith Alumnus–the past few years have been so memorable.
I chose to study engineering because I’ve always loved chemistry. I would recommend Murdoch to my friends because it’s been such a great experience for me not only for improving my knowledge but also my career and making new friends.
I’m studying at Murdoch to follow my childhood dream of being a marine biologist. I love learning new things through my course and being exposed to things that I would never have been able to see back in Singapore.
