Erin Kanygin
Juris Doctor

One of my friends that I met while living in Vancouver told me how she dreamed of studying at the University of Melbourne. A few years later the University was at a law school fair and it sort of seemed like fate, especially after I discovered how highly the law school is ranked internationally. Australia is a very viable choice compared to the United States and the UK in terms of affordability and compatibility with the Canadian system. This is easily one of the best decisions I have ever made.

What drew me to the University of Melbourne was a combination of academic and personal reasons. The university was a great fit for me - a renowned worldwide institution, evidence-based and constantly changing curriculum, and one of the world leaders in physiotherapy research

Jessica Wong
Doctor of Medicine

I love the friends I’ve made and the enriching culture I've experienced. Not only did I get a taste of a different healthcare culture, I also had the opportunity to practice and build on my clinical knowledge and hands-on procedural experiences. I was glad to have gotten out of my comfort zone and travelled to Australia and would dare say that this was one of the best choices I have made in my life.
