“The New Colombo Plan Scholarship was arguably the most incredible part of my degree. I learned all sorts of things outside of the curriculum. I learnt how to engage in a workforce that was not only in an area that I hadn’t worked before, but also a culture I didn’t know. I met students from other countries studying similar things to me and local students studying different things to me. This tight knit community at the university gave me an excellent feeling of community spirit. It was an amazing experience.”
