“My plan was to study the Fine Art course and then do a Dip-Ed to become an art teacher. But I realised that wasn't really for me and switched into Early Childhood Education. I've always wanted to teach, especially the younger years because its such a crucial time of children's lives where you can make the most impact on their learning. Reading about childhood development shows me how many...

“I hope to have my own theatre company one day, with a focus on creating theatre works to voice the minority voices of society. I'm currently in my final semester of the Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts, and chose to go down this path because my passion is in performing.

"I’m trying to apply to do my PhD study after this one, both my parents work in universities so they want me to study as much as I can. I still want to do the arts but because of my background from China, I want to focus more on cross-cultural communication through the arts. How humans express themselves through art.”

"I’m a Chinese student doing an exchange with Curtin and this is my first semester here. I’m studying laboratory medicine. I chose to come to study in Australia, because there a lot of opportunities to find work here, and studying in Australia makes that transition easier.

"The biggest difference I’m finding is that in China, the tutorials are very theoretical, but here the tutorials are...

"I'm in my third year of studying agribusiness. I grew up on a farm in York, so having that country background certainly makes studying it enjoyable. One of the reasons behind my decision to study agribusiness is that of global hunger. It is going to be an ever increasing problem into the future and being able to work in the agricultural industry means I have a role to hopefully help feed a...

"I have only recently graduated from studying a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in public relations.
