Tiny fraction of a journey called life! Be determined during the masters journey.
Tips: The university life is a different experience in itself. We study, do part-time jobs, and do all the household chores ourselves and also take care of our health. It is not easy and is stressful but good friends/company and self determination keep one going.
Likes (Internships): The course has an industrial placement offer, which can be very rewarding specifically in terms of full-term employment. There is a defined placement cell/ coordinator who keeps a record of the companies and the students applying for the same. There are many internships or part time/casual jobs available in the food sector.
Dislikes (Value for money): The tuition fees is slightly expensive, but it's always better and easier to get a scholarship. The jobs after graduation may not be entirely enough to pay back the student loan. Earlier it was easy to land a part time job, but it's not really easy if you're inexperienced.

Brisbane is a very safe place.
Tips: It’s a very pretty campus with amazing people. The food options are good on campus for vegetarians but not in the city. The nightlife and clubs are amazing. The faculty is very helpful and there are many scholarships for Indians so that’s a plus.
Likes (Safety): Brisbane is a very safe place. More and more people are relocating to Brisbane. It’s very safe for girls to go out at night as there is security everywhere. This is the reason why Brisbane is an ideal place for me to live and stay here.
Dislikes (Internships): There are fewer internship opportunities for international students than Australian students. Sometimes, I feel Asian people face discrimination at workplaces. This is one of the prime reasons that I rate low on internships. But people are genuinely helpful.

Being a UQ student helps in networking.
Tips: University of Queensland is one of the best universities for economics and behavioral sciences in the world. It ranks highly in the employability ranking and has good scholarship programs. The student to teacher ratio has always been less, making consultation more efficient.

Best decision of my life.
Tips: Indian students should prepare for plagiarism-free writing and study hard for their exams and assignments. Never take anything easy as it seems easy but it is not. Make sure to review everything after the class and study by yourself. Do not copy and learn to reference.
