Living far away from my family was daunting at first but it was the right decision to choose to study in Melbourne because everyone here is so friendly and always willing to help you. The campus is so beautiful, a mix of traditional and modern architecture.

The support services were especially helpful for me before I left Vietnam to come to Melbourne as they were very easy to reach online and really assisted me in moving in here.
