Mutsumi Katayama - Japan



Mutsumi Katayama, Bachelor of Environmental Science (LBVT)

Why did you choose to study at the University of South Australia (UniSA)?

“I chose UniSA because the subjects in the course looked interesting and I was eligible for credit transfer from a previous study in Environmental Management at TAFE SA.”


“You will love your life in Adelaide if you want to focus on studying in a quiet and laid-back environment as well as enjoy your life in such beautiful nature surrounding Adelaide. Teaching staff at UniSA will be helpful if you need any help or assistance.”


What are the benefits of UniSA and their teaching staff?

“As a part of my study, I enjoy practical sessions such as field work and field trips including ecology camp. The teaching staff have multicultural backgrounds and broad knowledge. Teachers are responsible whenever we ask questions.

I mostly have classes at Mawson Lakes campus but use City East campus to do assignments as it is closer to where I live and more computers are available.”

What are your impressions of Adelaide?

“The Torrens River is nice to go for a walk and the Central Market in the city is fun for grocery shopping. I have been involved in volunteer work for Environmental groups, a community garden and BioBlitz, where I made some new friends. I hope to work in environmental field in Australia as a conservation officer or work for restoration projects.”
