Advice from students & staff
Leaving home to travel to another country is an exciting experience. It also involves a lot of challenges that you should be prepared for.
Here’s what some of our students and staff say about what you have to look forward to!

“Learning English is very important to do when travelling overseas.” - She Hai Shan (USFP)
“Students should be prepared to miss their families and friends a lot. Food in Australia is also very different, thus it takes time to find some you’re used to. The weather in Australia will be liked by everyone though.” - Olga Yahkno (USFP)

"Pursue a Maori cultural experience. Also eat a teaspoon of Marmite everyday!" - Kei Eagle (AEP teacher)
