I was chosen as a Gold Coast Mayor's Student Ambassador representing PhD students at Griffith. I learnt so much about the city and the Queensland Government and participated in leadership workshops. I met people from all over the world, improved my English and self-confidence throughout the opportunity.

The structure of the vet degree at Murdoch is excellent and the people within the course are so considerate. As vet students, we need to accumulate industry-based animal experience as part of our degree. The vet staff and academics are very helpful in helping us students to get work-experience and provide us with a range of volunteering opportunities. Having this kind of support makes me feel as though there is always going to be someone there to help me when I need it, which is very helpful.

The global research reputation and academic staff at Griffith are why I chose to study in Brisbane. A highlight of studying at Griffith University has been making many good international and domestic friends, particularly by being a Brisbane International Student Ambassador in 2016.

It was always my dream to study both Psychology and Criminology. In my country, there was only one university offering this degree. So, when I started to search for universities, Griffith immediately stood out as the School of Criminology is internationally recognised and in the top 5%. This was the reason I applied to Griffith initially, but I chose Griffith because there was simply no other university that made me feel so welcome and appreciated as Griffith did from the very first moment of contact.

Murdoch offers a good DVM program and is closest from my home country, Malaysia. I like the opportunities, resources and the facilities that Murdoch offers. It means we get to learn a lot through hands on practical classes. Murdoch has been a great help in the transition process with the international student orientation and related activities. The staff, whether locally or internationally born, are always very friendly and patient to everyone.

The orientation program was at the start of my program and was quite robust and very helpful, I got all the information I needed and that laid a good foundation for the smooth commencement of my studies. In addition, during my Master's program, I received ongoing support from the HDR advisor and also used the services of the student counselors, which I found to be very helpful. I have also received immense support from the academic staffs supervising my projects.

"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."

"I have had the opportunity to take part in the Griffith mentoring program which helped me find a mentor from within the Queensland Government. It is a wonderful resource for students who want to find a mentor in their study area. I also joined the Queensland Chinese Association of Scientists and Engineers (QCASE) which has lots of outstanding scientists in it. They all help me to learn how to best balance my study and life and how to develop my career in the future."

"Griffith University has a good international reputation in Tourism Management as it has been ranked number one in Australia and number two in the world. The impact of tourism research has been a benefit to the community in general. I chose to study at the Gold Coast campus as it has great weather and is close to the tourism destination, Surfers Paradise. It is good for me and my family as we can relax and enjoy the beach on weekends."

"My Griffith degree has prepared me for my career through the skills it has equipped me with, creating more career opportunities for me outside the traditional academic path of a PhD graduate. I am confident that I can secure a good job outside of academia when I complete my PhD."

"Griffith’s support services helped me a lot. Lecturers were always open for consultation to clarify unclear points for me as a confused international student. I also got a UniSkills paid leader position through UniTemps, and made a lot of friends through Griffith mates activities."

"I decided to complete my PhD at AUT because it’s one of New Zealand’s top universities and is well-known overseas. AUT has a great infrastructure for research and study, including well-resourced libraries, laboratories and classrooms, and highly qualified lecturers. AUT also has a vibrant campus life."

"I first heard about an opportunity at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games through the School of Medicine. It has definitely been a unique experience. I worked mostly in the Athlete's Village Polyclinic at the front desk with awesome hospital and clinic receptionists. I shadowed emergency doctors, sports physicians and general practitioners and spent time learning how to read x-rays and CT scans from radiologists. It was the people I met during these weeks that made my experience particularly special!"
