    Duaa is an Engineering PhD student at AUT in Auckland

    “I was interested in a PhD in New Zealand as I had heard about the good opportunities for PhD students such as the domestic fees for international students. Study options helped me a lot with information related to universities, application process and life in New Zealand.“I still remember the moment when I received my New Zealand study visa, how excited I was and how happy my parents were to see me taking this huge step. I arrived Auckland in January 2017 and my head was full of many questions...

    Chris is at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, doing a PhD in Sport Science

    “I was always keen to pursue a PhD abroad, having spent a majority of my life in one country. Then the opportunity from Study Options came up in which they offered me full support around the process of applying to PhD programmes in New Zealand. From this I was directed into the path of the University of Canterbury under the supervision of Dr. Carl Petersen. “Going abroad for a significant period of time, especially considering how far NZ is away, is a daunting experience. However, Study...

    Catxere is a PhD student at the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Queensland

    “I was living in a tiny Spanish island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean when I started my Ph.D. application at UQ. The whole process – bureaucratic and demanding – took a year. At one stage it was starting to feel impossible to finish the application without flying myself to Australia! But I then discovered that the application could be done with Study Options in the UK – a comparatively short direct flight away. Their outstanding job made the process easy and smooth; every problem in the...

    Studying a Master of Dietetics at Deakin University, Melbourne

    “There aren’t a lot of universities that offer the course I wanted to study and it is very competitive.  I was very glad that Study Options helped me all the way from making applications to paying deposits, to applying for my visa, and getting all my documents ready before moving abroad.  I chose Deakin University as it was recommended by one of my lecturers back in the UK, and I was very happy indeed when I received an offer! “When I first arrived Melbourne, I thought it felt a...

    Jeremy started the Master of International Studies at the University of Sydney in February 2018

    “After completing my degree in 2013, I moved to London where I worked in advertising. The first six months were fun, but soon the novelty of living in such a large, cold, expensive city wore off - as did my interest in advertising, which I soon found was not for me. I wanted a change of scenery, a change of career goals that reflected my passions and to live somewhere completely different with great weather and friendly people – a world away from London! So enough was enough, and on a very...
