Why did I choose this university?

‘I decided to go abroad because I always wanted to go outside and explore new places and experience new cultures. Australia is known as a multicultural society, so here I am! And RMIT is famous for Art and Construction, exactly the areas I’m interested in! Those are the main reasons why I decided to join. RMIT doesn’t really have a campus. The buildings are spread along Swanston Street, the main street of the city, and give a truly good view {of the city]. RMIT is just like a part of the city, and the design and style of the buildings are just fascinating. I think that represents the open and energetic characteristic of RMIT. I’m more intrigued with a university with young heart other than some normal-style campus.’

My first week

‘When coming to a whole new place, the beginning is always the hardest part. It took me some time to find the right building and classroom to go to at first, and I felt a little bit lonely and out of control. But when everything settled in a certain pace, it began to seem okay – just relax and don’t worry so much. I fitted in without a lot of trouble or effort, maybe because I’m always willing to communicate with others. My only suggestion is be optimistic and enjoy the life’

My campus

‘I’m now studying in the city campus of RMIT. It’s a great place with fairly easy transportation and good view of the whole city. Every RMIT building has astonishing style and bright colors, easily visible throughout Melbourne. Building 80 is the business building, and also the one with most marvelous design and facility. The cafes located there are great. Building 100 is the newly-built design hub, mainly used as an art gallery. This whole building is decorated with round, translucent panels. All the architects behind the RMIT Buildings, while thinking of the overall appearance, also concentrated on their sustainable abilities. Most of my classes are in Building 8, because the 8th floor is mainly used for construction, property and project management students. On the 5th floor is our school library and the below floors belong to the student union. I think it is a fairly cozy place.’

My city

‘Melbourne is a multicultural city which means you can always meet people from another part of the world, which is truly different from where I come from. It has a free and mutually-respected atmosphere for every international student to enjoy their life and express their feelings. Being an international student here where you’re exchanging cultures from other people, means you can always learn new things and that’s interesting. The local people here are warm and friendly, when facing problems, like losing your way, missing the tram etc. It is always the best option to ask them. Melbourne is a combination of different cultures. You can always find some very authentic foreign eateries or restaurants with a perfect mixture of different styles. Whether walking in the valleys or on the streets, there are lots of amazing places waiting for you.’

My study space

‘I have one or two classes every day such as lectures, tutorials or workshops. It is a wise choice to combine these types of classes together as they give us a deep understanding about the subjects we are actually learning. I am now studying construction management because I want to find a job in the real estate area in the future. I believe this program will definitely benefit my future career choice. Everything I am learning right now has something to do with construction areas. This program for RMIT is actually preparing for my future career. Most of the time, I’d like to stay at home when previewing or reviewing the classes; it’s quieter in my room. But when the submission date is approaching and I have lots of assignments to write and lots of group meetings, I like to stay in the library; it’s better for me to concentrate and browse for resources. The study load is alright for me.’

My social life

‘During my free time, my friends and I usually choose to walk around, maybe visit some museums or gardens, go to the movies together and explore new places to eat. Sometimes we’ll just spend a whole afternoon in a café; the coffee and chocolate in Melbourne are really good. When we really can’t come up with something interesting to do, wandering around the city is also a good choice because you’ll always find some interesting place. Making friends may be a huge problem for lots of newly-arrived international students. Actually, it is not that hard; simply have a little more chit-chat with your classmates or your group members, and you will surely get some friends very soon. I joined in a mentoring program in RMIT called “Making Connections”; this program organizes different events and activities from to time, aiming to let the international students become more familiar with Melbourne and make more friends. Now after two semesters, I have taken the responsibility as a mentor to lead a group of international students.’

My home

"‘I used to live in a homestay family in the suburbs which was arranged by the RMIT accommodation
system. The host family are locals and they helped me to settle down in Melbourne. It is a good chance to practice English while in a homestay family; through the conversations you can acquire lots of interesting facts about Melbourne, including good places to go and cultural differences. The family were truly nice and warm; I had a good time there. Now I have moved out into an apartment near RMIT, which is easier for me to go to classes every day. It is a newly built apartment; everything is brand new and tidy. I’m now living alone, so the apartment I chose can only be described as a studio, but it is still spacious for one girl – I enjoy living here. The only advice I have for students who decide to live outside of the university is don’t forget to pay the bills on time!’"
