Things to consider before going to study overseas.
Proactively taking opportunities, experiencing the local community and getting a part-time job are a few things those who plan to study overseas should consider. In this episode of TIPS, Phillip Fredericks shares what he has learned from studying overseas.
No matter how long or short your stay, time will surely fly faster than you anticipate when you study abroad. Make the most of your time as a student in Australia by exploring the country. Making friends among the locals and joining clubs and societies are also sure fire ways to make your stay meaningful and memorable.
Another way to add value to your time in Australia is to get a part-time job. This allows you to meet more people outside your regular network. Expand your connections and experiences as much as you can!
Life as an international student will surely be made easier when you know how to make each moment count. Enjoy each day and take everything as it comes.
