My international student experience

I am writing this blog to share my experience as an international student and intern at an Australian company.  My name is Neelkumar Shah and I am from India and about to graduate with a Master of Management for Engineers this year. Before enrolling in this postgraduate course, I was a civil engineer in a multinational construction company in India. Like many students, I came to Melbourne and enrolled in CQUniversity with two aims; a better lifestyle and career advancement. After studying at CQUniversity (Melbourne campus), I feel that I have enjoyed living in Melbourne and gained the necessary knowledge and skills for further employment. I hope this brief recount of my experience will give you some insights on the significance of the internship program which is being offered by CQUniversity.

My unforgettable trip to China

My name is Ashley and I am a current fourth-year student in the Bachelor of Medical Sonography and Graduate Diploma of Medical Sonography program at the CQU Melbourne campus. I commenced study at CQUni in 2014 after completing a Bachelor of Health Science on the Gold Coast. Although I was born in South Africa, I moved to Australia when I was five, and now call Melbourne “home”.

In recognition of my academic achievement throughout my studies, I was invited to join the Golden Key International Honours Society in 2015, who partner with ‘Envision’ and the International Scholar Laureate Program (ILSP). I was given the opportunity to explore health care and medical education in a different culture as part of the Delegation in Medicine and Science, hosted by the ISLP in China. The international program offers educational opportunities and experiences to high achieving students in delegations such as Medicine and Science, Engineering, Business, Nursing and Healthcare, and Diplomacy, visiting countries across the world.

As part of the experience, I travelled to Beijing, Xi’an, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Homesickness! A note from an international student…

Home is where the heart is

I’m finally free!

I’ve met hundreds of super exciting people, announced our friendships as “official” via Facebook, sat through some eye-opening/closing lectures in my first few days of university.  Life couldn’t get any better!
