    Ashley studied a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Melbourne

    I came to Australia to start my PhD in January 2015, which was a big adventure as I did not know anyone prior to arriving, and I had not even been to Australia before. Despite this, I was able to settle here and make friends very quickly. I particularly enjoy the lifestyle here in Perth – the climate is warm, dry and sunny year round, which is great because I enjoy a range of outdoor hobbies, including SCUBA diving, cycling and hiking. Perth and Western Australia more generally provides great...
