"Brisbane is a fantastic place to live"

Aleksander is studying at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, and it is pretty fair to say that he has the time of his life. Read why here...

Why did you choose to study in Australia and at QUT?

I chose to study in Australia because it is the most exotic country a Norwegian can think of, also it's an English speaking country which makes communicating and studying fairly simple. Australia is a beautiful country and I am amazed by the raw nature and wildlife. Brisbane is a fantastic place to live and it feels like there's always something happening in every corner of the city. QUT was my first pick because they are really focused on teaching practical skills that will be relevant in my career and that is something employers look for. The school also has a superb location and first class facilities. I spend a lot of time in the computer labs and doing research in the library so it means a great deal to have the best resources available.

What is the best thing about studying at QUT?

The best thing about studying at QUT is feeling the vibe on campus, experiencing life as a student in a foreign country at a top school with thousands of students and some of the best teachers in the world. I also feel like the scool does well in seeing every student and offering something for everyone. There are so many introduction programs, social activities, volunteering opportunities and other support programs to take part in of you want to engage and meet new people!

Do you have some good advice for others who are thinking of studying abroad?

Don't miss out on the opportunities you get. Go out and see the world, as you may not get a chance like this again. As an undergraduate I didn't apply for studying abroad and I regret that now. Luckily, I got the chance to do my postgrad at QUT and I cannot reccomend it enough.
