When I first arrived in Australia, I didn’t know anything about this new place nor did I know anyone.

The quality of the teaching staff is superb! My professors have first-hand experience in the fields they teach. They apply real-world problems in lectures to help students understand the theory.

Griffith's support services have helped me with something that I personally have struggled a lot with - socializing and making new friends. Moving entirely alone to a new country was very difficult for me to adjust to, especially because I had no friends here and nobody to turn to when I needed help.

I learned all the academic differences between my country and Australia and had lots of opportunities to practise. Teachers and staff were friendly and provided excellent resources to study as well as extra student experiences. Additionally, it was a great place to make friends as all students had the same goal which was to improve their English skills and progress to University. We studied together and hung out together as well.
