Why you should join a student society at the University of Adelaide

Moving to a new country isn’t always easy. Part of the reason that it can be difficult is that you miss the things that you associate with home.   Now, it might be difficult to get your mum’s cooking shipped halfway across the world, but if playing sport with your mates is what gets you through a tough week, you can certainly continue that all around the world.   Joining a sports club or society at university is something which can help

I really enjoy studying at Uni of Adelaide. The best decision I had ever made is to study Agricultural Science at this Uni. This course program is logical and flexible. In first and second year. We need to learn a lot of foundation courses, like biology, chemistry, plant science, soil and water management and so on. And we need to finish 12 weeks working experience before third year. As me, I was an intern at one of horticultural companies and Roseworthy campus. In third year, we will have a lot of elective courses. In terms of our interest, if you like animal production, you can choose animal breeding and reproduction. If you like plant or soil, there are a lot of courses you choose. Based on the combination of working experiences and course studying, we have had a clear career planning. If you want to be Aggies, UoA is a good choice. show less

The University of Adelaide is among the top universities in the world, providing its students with a first-rate education; and I am very satisfied with the depth of knowledge that the University of Adelaide has given me during my master degree. Having said that, during my Biotechnology Masters, I’ve found that the highly qualified academic and research staff (in my course) are not only there to teach you advanced courses and highly necessary Lab skills but they are also very supportive when it comes to looking for further opportunities which makes a huge difference especially for international students. I believe that doing a Master of Biotechnology here provided me with the latest knowledge in my field required for accomplishing my goals. show less
