"Moving away from home for the first time to come to Flinders University, I was excited, nervous and unsure about what to expect, but the staff at the Medical School really took me under their wing and made this transition easy. The level of support I received was significantly greater than I expected, and it helped me to settle in away from family and friends.

“Studying at Flinders has been a great experience, not only because the course is very practical and is patient-centered, but also because it allows you to build lasting relationships with your fellow students and doctors. Combining this with living in a vibrant city with plenty of outdoor activities and friendly people has made my last year-and-a-half a wonderful experience."
