University can be a daunting experience, especially as a female enrolling in a male dominated degree. Moving from country South Australia made my initial University experience even more stressful.

By involving myself in various University societies and volunteering opportunities, as well as part-time work, I soon became comfortable with my new student-city lifestyle. By stepping out of my comfort zone, I have had an amazing University experience and I will finish my degree with lifelong friendships, an outstanding education and a fantastic graduate opportunity.
