Choosing a foreign country to continue our studies has a lot of benefits. On one hand it provides self-confidence, better understanding of cultural diversity, overall way of thinking, discoveries of global contexts and new methods of studying. It also provides challenges, friendships and professional background information for job applications. On the other hand, the "unknown" can be confusing, like getting used to different education and assessment standards.
Thankfully, JCU Brisbane offers the support when you need it. The Student Resource Centre (SRC) and the Language & Learning Centre (LLC) aim to provide students with adequate help for their successful studies. I found their workshops, assignment checking sessions and enthusiastic help extremely useful. The SRC and LLC facilitate professional as well as personal development. I would like to say thank you to all the staff for their support.
