I enjoy cutting-edge learning in spacious learning centre like Hub Central and the Barr Smith Library. Also, mixed culture of the eastern and the western is incredible when I made friends who come from different continents. Campus life packed with social and sport clubs (Adelaide University Union, tennis club) is perfect.Hnin Nwe Nwe
