As an undergraduate student studying a Bachelor of Science (Biotechnology) in the University of Adelaide, I am fortunate enough to experience quality, world class education by academia’s here in the university. I receive support not only to pursue academic interests in my time at the university, but activities that support my academics such as lab experience. My lecturers are wonderful and they are always happy to make time for me to discuss with me my future path as well as my aspirations.
I enjoy getting involved with the university and part of that experience is being an International Student Centre Peer Mentor. There, I am encouraged to fully explore my potential and to provide the best experience for incoming international students to Adelaide. It was a great learning experience and the support provided by the staff certainly helped shape me who am I today. My time in the university has enabled me to meet a wide range of friends and the opportunity to immerse myself in an international experience. Regardless if it is studying at the hub or having a group dinner together; it is truly an amazing Adelaide Experience.
With a strong support system for international students, I am able to capitalise on the opportunities available here to succeed at university.Arthur Eng Lip Yeow
