As the CEO of Sunfarmer, Avishek is leading a team who have implemented over 1,600 solar energy projects for hospitals, some of which have only ever had 15 hours of power a day, schools in local communities, government buildings, farms and water and sanitation facilities.
“The most important lesson my professors taught me at Murdoch was a holistic approach towards implementing any project. We need to understand and integrate four pillars – technical, social, environmental, and political and economic aspects. This has been my main mantra and approach to any work or project I am involved with. “It was a great opportunity to get exposure to international education and learn about things that we are not aware of, and to find out about things that we can adopt in our country to create ample benefits.”

"Without a doubt, my Roehampton degree opened many doors for me. Having my MSc from a British school has allowed me to stand out from other professionals in my field. Never in a million years did I think I would be working on projects of this size, scope, and importance. Plus, I met my future wife at Heathrow Airport on my first day in London. She was heading to Roehampton just like me!"

"I chose Otago for the international and multicultural opportunities. I lived at the university's college for postgraduates with people from 38 countries and had 6 nationalities in my Master's cohort. I've learned a bit of Te Reo, and had the chance to explore beautiful Dunedin and the South Island with so many different people. I couldn't have hoped for a better postgraduate experience."

The highlight of my Griffith experience so far is that I've got to connected and become friends with students from many backgrounds. Their stories and experiences help to enrich my knowledge and perspectives. It is also that I've had opportunities to contribute to support other students to enjoy their university lives, for example, being a part of the Griffith Mates.

I think that my first desire was to get outside of my comfort zone and have the experience of living by myself in a different country, with a different culture, with different people, be somewhere I don’t know anyone else and live an international student life – which is very, very challenging. This was my first thought, but after the first year, after settling, everything changed... Continue reading Ligia's journey on whatALUMNIsay

"At RRU, I made connections between the academic side of the program and my hands-on experiences. I got to see the importance of the host community’s involvement and the roles of sustainability and resources as they pertain to tourism. Plus, I got to enjoy the hospitality of a new community and its people. It’s an experience I’ll never forget." Read more about Mihir here.

It is hard to pick out just one aspect of my Griffith experience. I think that being recognised for hard work has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my time at Griffith, as it can be hard for an international student with limited network to maintain motivation throughout the degree.

The highlight of my Griffith experience so far is being selected as one of the Griffith International Postgraduate excellence Scholarship awardee. The scholarship eased my financial burden and enabled me to dedicate more time to my studies. I was then able to acquire new knowledge and skills that will go a long way in influencing my emerging practice framework.

I always wanted to choose the best university to pursue my degree. When I enrolled at Curtin University, I found more than I've ever expected: talented and friendly teachers, multicultural friends from more than 14 countries and a beautiful campus. I'm sure that Curtin will play a great role in helping me become a valued food scientist in the future. I'm happy that I've chosen to study at one of the best Australian universities!

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.

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!

All of these experiences have opened my eyes to a much wider variety of career opportunities besides from my perception, which makes me work-ready and enhances my employability.

"I feel that I have made the best choice - especially because of the technology-infused learning. I love the way the course is taught using a multimedia approach, and the fact that it has access to a whole online library, which we can use to read for tutorials and research assignments."

"RRU helped me get a real-world learning experience. The multicultural and amazingly experienced cohort, brilliant faculty, research trips all along with fun not only helped me understand tourism from a global perspective but also gave me an opportunity to contribute to the academic world through my assignments and my final thesis. The experience at RRU was invaluable and I feel overwhelmingly lucky to have been a part of this academic journey."

"My best friend from high school, Yiwei, got an offer from Colby-Sawyer and decided to go. So I asked her why, and then she told me something I still remember after nearly 10 years, "I think I could really learn in a liberal art environment, instead of having parties all the time in a big university. I know that would be so much fun, but it is just not for me." By the time I saw the pictures of Windy Hill online, I knew that was where I should go. My advice for future international students: when you think you can't make this, hang in there for a little bit more time. And my favorite food: ice cream!"

"The reason why I chose to study here is because UNE is considered the best university in Australia in the field of agricultural and environmental science particularly animal and crop science. The current and well-designed curriculum with a good combination of theory, management and practical components in each unit is excellent and this is what I really need to enhance my career in the future. In the class, the very reputable, professional and friendly lecturers are extremely helpful in achieving the learning outcomes of each unit that I enrolled."

"On my arrival to Brisbane airport I was greeted by some Griffith Mates, a service I had organised prior to arriving. They were incredibly helpful and got me to campus safe and sound. My first impression of Brisbane was how beautiful and clean it is."
