Jenna Oh
Master of Management (Accounting)

When I think about my experience of Australia, I like to compare it to my undergrad in the States. It’s a very different vibe, everyone here nicer, and more relaxed. I think it’s an environment that’s more conducive to learning, because your professors and classmates are all much more approachable. It’s a really challenging course, but you feel supported. I think more Korean students should come here. It’s a great community.

Miru Kim
Master of Engineeering (Civil)

When I was choosing my degree, I knew I wanted to study engineering, but I wasn’t sure which type. The Melbourne curriculum allowed me to take a broader area of subjects within different engineering departments and find out what I wanted to specialise in. I learned that there are a wide range of disciplines within civil engineering and now I know that I want to be a construction engineer.

Seunghee Angela Lee
Bachelor of Arts

I was instantly drawn to Melbourne by the vibrant visual arts scene on campus and in the city. In coming to Melbourne, I can pursue my hobbies such as attending music gigs, art galleries, theatre and other festivals. I love that the campus has a balance between nature and the city.
