Why did you choose to study at the University of South Australia (UniSA)?
“I chose UniSA because the program I am doing is in line with my career path but also aligns with my country’s skills and knowledge needs.”
What are the benefits of UniSA and their teaching staff?
“The application procedure of UniSA is quite easy and friendly. I am highly impressed with the response behaviour of UniSA to international students while processing admissions. UniSA is very supportive to international students for sending the admission offer letter. As per the notification, I got an unconditional offer letter within four weeks of my application submission. UniSA accepted me as a full time student within a week. I am highly impressed with my University as I have noticed that many other Australian universities don’t have a quick response time.
UniSA has great diversity in student’s background, nationality, culture and environment. After joining UniSA, I got a chance to mix with international students and teachers. I am enjoying it a lot with all of my new friends. The teachers here are quite helpful and friendly. They behave as a friend which is really different to my culture. In addition, I am also enjoying activities conducted by the University of South Australia Students’ Association (USASA).
As per my experience, the teachers of UniSA are well-trained, educated and helpful. When, I got confused they always supported me to solve the problem.
In the first semester of my study, I attended two field trips. All the field trips were quite successful. Field trips are really important to technical students. From my field trip I learned about the actual working environment of Hope Valley Water Treatment Plant and Bolivar Wastewater Treatment Plant. The theory of the subject matter is implemented in practice through field visits.
In addition to field trips, there is another important option of study, an ‘industry project’. An industry project is the most practical option because students get the opportunity to conduct experiments and trials like the real workplace environment. This not only increases practical knowledge but also improves the chance of getting a professional job.
I have utilised UniSA’s Learning and Teaching Unit and Campus Central and found that they are quite supportive.”
What are your impressions of Adelaide?
“Adelaide is the most well planned city I have ever seen in my life. I never had any difficulties in settling here.”
What is your advice to others?
“I recommend to future students that UniSA is the right destination for academic success in life as it provides quality education, a healthy study environment and state-of-art education.”
