Feedback from teachers and the university in general has been a huge motivational factor for me to continue wanting to achieve more and push on through. Also, one particular highlight was the industry experience internship I did in my undergraduate studies. I got to work at the Radio Metro radio station, which was a very valuable experience and super fun!
I have really appreciated the support service at Griffith University. They have been able to manage everything I’ve needed carefully which has ultimately helped me progress through my degree smoothly. Both the student administration and the academic staff have provided guidance and support whenever I’ve needed it.
During my first year at Griffith I was given the chance to complete an internship with the Commonwealth Games. Since it was a once in a lifetime opportunity, I made the most of it. I was able to learn so many new things, meet new people from different backgrounds and witness implementation of world-class technology that supported the staging of one of the most remarkable sporting events that Australia will host this decade.
When I decided to go back to university to further my education in tourism management, I first searched university rankings online and found that Griffith University is in the top-class in this study area. From here, my decision was easy: "it has to be Griffith University."
I have really enjoyed how student services at Griffith have been able to give me all the information I need about studying and opportunities I can take advantage of. The international friendly atmosphere has made me feel very welcomed.
The Aussie students have all been kind and welcoming in all of my classes. Getting to know my professors on a one-on-one basis has been really nice as well. I don't feel afraid to ask questions and for extra help as they are all friendly.
I am very passionate about the chemistry of natural products. Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery at Griffith University is a world-renowned institute for natural products-based drug discovery research, which I am really excited about. This was the main reason why I chose to pursue a PhD at Griffith University.
One of my highlights of studying with Griffth so far is the opportunity to join social groups. As an international student, this experience has helped me to meet new people in a warm and inviting environment.
