A transformative experience @ UWA
Tips: There was a cultural shock at first, but not for long. You get used to the new environment quite quickly. I did get the Global Excellence Scholarship which is the highest amount one can receive. I got it due to my strong academic background. Overall, very satisfied with everything.

Great experience at The University of Western Australia
Tips: The University of Western Australia is a prestigious university with a good international ranking. I got the Global Excellence scholarship which depends on the marks scored in Bachelors the details of which can be found on the University website. Australia is good in terms of abundant resources and opportunities here. The course is taught by illustrious professors excelling in the field.
Likes (Indian Food): Indian food ingredients are available here. There are several Indian restaurants here too. The typical Indian food will be available only at the Indian stores which are a little far in the suburbs. Although it will be expensive. The University food at the cafeteria is fine and helps when there is a small gap between the classes.
Dislikes (Public transportation): The public transportation is okay in terms of connectivity with the campus. It is better to find accommodation near the University as it will save lots of time. Finding accommodation in Perth is competitive nowadays due to a huge influx of students now.

Master of Business Analytics - Batch of 2023
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Good university and course structure for courses but not a lot of help with future opportunities.
Tips: I got a scholarship which was only available for south Asian students at that time. I don't think it's available any longer, however, I got 5000 per year so a total of 10,000 for Masters. I was satisfied with the education I received and my course and mostly satisfied with the staff and really enjoyed the country. I however wasn't too happy with how limited help the university provides with finding jobs during or after graduation. 8 months later I still don't have full-time work and I know quite a few other people in the same situation. Australian employers give preference to candidates with Australian work experience and then abroad full-time work experience even for graduate roles.
Likes (Safety): We have an App to contact emergency campus patrol services at any time. Have felt pretty safe traveling around the city even at night. Haven't had any issues with the local people and any incidents heard of are very far and few even though the general consensus outside of Australia isn't great.
Dislikes (Internships): No guidance at all on finding internships. The university used to provide volunteering internships previously but recently they have moved to having to pay course fees to get them. If you network outside of university resources you have a better chance of it. Hard to get an internship.

Enriching experience. Teleportation to my dream
Tips: I am fully satisfied with my university and its academic curriculum. I used to think that it would be hard for me in terms of the transition from India to Australia but was not hard for me cause my university provided me with enough support. Besides this, I enjoyed exploring this path as I was on my own and it made me independent and a new but fantastic experience. I think everyone if they could should experience it. It is really among the best years of my life.
Likes (Safety): Choosing the UWA in Perth has been an enriching experience. The campus prioritizes our safety with well-lit pathways, top-notch security and efficient emergency services. It's more than just security, the university genuinely cares bout our well-being, offering comprehensive health services and fostering a sense of community through collaboration with local authorities. Perth has a vibrant culture and people are friendly which is ideal for the international student. Despite the usual challenges the unique charm of the city and the array of recreational opportunities have significantly enhanced my academic journey.
Dislikes (Indian Food): I like to cook on my own and sometimes explore the outside food options. But for vegetarians like me there are limited options here for dining out but yeah if someone likes to cook they can find all the resources needed for the cooking. The positive side is that those who do not know cooking will learn and enjoy cooking as it is a basic skill everyone should know.

Master of Legal Practice - Batch of 2022

Worthwhile experience of redoing a Law degree in Australia
Tips: Studying a full-time degree at UWA require regular studying and keeping up with the lectures. The teaching style was quite different from what I was used to in India. I was a recipient of the Global Excellence scholarship for the duration of my study. This was awarded to me on the basis of my academic achievements.
Likes (Value for money): The Master of Legal Practice programme provides the opportunity to complete the required unit as assessed by the Legal Practice Board with an ability to obtain a masters level degree. The lecturers are excellent and the case scenarios are relevant and updated.
Dislikes (Part time work): I did not apply for on campus placements. I worked as a Law Clerk at a boutique law firm while studying the course full-time. The work/study balance was manageable as I worked 3 days a week and spent the 2 days at the university for tutorials. I was paid the minimum wage for working as a law clerk.
