Why you should study in Perth, Australia

There are many reasons why Perth is a popular destination choice. There’s the mild weather, pristine coastline (19 white-sand beaches!), award-winning food and wineries, culture and arts, outback adventures, free CBD WiFi and hop-on-hop-off buses that take you around the main city sites… but one of the greatest perks about Perth is that it shares the same time zone with 60% of the world’s population!

The city of Perth is a quick flight to most Asian cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Delhi, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, making it just that little bit easier to keep in touch with friends and family.

Snapshot of Ashoka U Exchange 2018: Day 1

Have you ever travelled the United States in 2 days???  Well, I just did.

You must be thinking that I am crazy but it actually happened in April where I had a wonderful opportunity to travel to Boston from Australia (Melbourne).

Let’s begin the story of my journey…….

It was the morning of 4th April 2018 when I travelled to Sydney from Melbourne where I met other friends who were travelling with me to Boston, Massachusetts. So, to be more precise, we travelled from Sydney to Los Angeles (which was the first international flight to the USA), Los Angeles to Atlanta and finally Atlanta to Boston. So, after 36 hours of flight and transit time, we arrived in Boston.

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.
