As part of our Q&A series, Study Online Australia had the pleasure of speaking to Taylor, who recently moved to Australia from the United States.
Study Online Australia helped Taylor to apply for two student visas. After completing an Advanced Diploma in Social Media, she is now studying for her Diploma of Leadership and Management in Melbourne.
We chatted to Taylor all about her experience of living in Australia so far and asked for her top tips on studying down under.
Read our interview with Taylor below.
What inspired you to study in Australia?
Australia is the kind of place people where I'm from always talk about going to but never do. It was important for me to continue my education in an innovative and forward thinking place and Melbourne is just that. It's great being surrounded by a diverse community and people with different perspectives on life than my own.
What do you love about your course and why?
I love that my course is relevant to my passions and I use the skills learned in my work place but also in my daily life.
How did Study Online Australia help you to find the right course?
Study Online Australia's director Pavla is the best! She is helpful, thorough and makes sure you are aware of everything the course will involve in regards to costs, units, etc. I could not have felt this confident in my study without Pavla's support.
How did you find the student visa application process?
The student application process was manageable thanks to Pavla and her assistance. I'm passionate about what I'm doing so I think that helped to make the process easier for me.
What advice would you give to aspiring students dreaming of studying in Australia?
A helpful tip I feel I could give students studying in Australia is to always be open to learning and trying new things. Everyone you meet has something they can teach you and you can provide people with so much value yourself! Keeping your mind and heart open to what's to come is equally as important as the education you'll receive.
