Coming to a new country to pursue my Master of Engineering was a challenging and emotional decision. I had to leave my parents and near-and-dear ones and come to a completely new place, but when I landed on 28th February 2019 at the Rockhampton airport, the love and care I received was so comforting. It still brings a happy tear to my eye.
Capricornia College (the CQUniversity Rockhampton student residence) welcomed me upon arrival. I immediately became a member of the ‘family’ and Cap College quickly became my home.

I remember the first time I ever set foot onto a CQUniversity campus. It was O’Week 2017, and I was arriving at the Mackay City campus with a hundred or so fresh-faced school leavers and a handful of mature students for the very first time, and I was as nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs. I didn’t know anyone, and I was scared out of my wits, but I was determined that just because it was hard and it really pushed me out of my comfort zone, there was no reason not to give myself this opportunity.

As international students deciding to come to Australia, our decision to study here is often made based on the pursuit of our career aspirations. When we arrive, we need to develop our language skills, and understand the environment and cultural trends to get a job and gather enough financial resources to afford our daily and study-related expenses. How can we achieve our career aspirations while we are doing all this? By identifying our personal strengths and weaknesses, defining our life goals and career purpose, targeting the roles we want to perform, identifying the skills we need to develop, volunteering and leadership involvement. These are all great strategies to help us work towards our desired careers.

Studying in Australia comes with amazing opportunities and experiences, but I’ve found that international students like myself often have to deal with a number of factors that could overwhelm us. Controlling our expenses like renting, groceries shopping, mobile plan, public transport and of course leisure activities, managing our agenda, keeping a high academic performance and trying to not let stress block the road to our dreams.
Facing all of these challenges can be difficult but it is also a fantastic opportunity to develop our own personal management skills. Studying in Australia, which presents a huge multicultural group of students, has allowed me to learn some strategies from different friends, teachers and support staff. Here is what I’ve learned so far…
