    Ashley studied a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Melbourne

    "I studied Philosophy at University of Melbourne for about a year and a half.  Though I didn't graduate, and now live back in London, I got quite a bit out of the course at a time that was pretty difficult for me.  Whilst not everything was straightforward to understand and adjust to with regards to the difference in educational procedure, and Australian testing standards, Study Options did a pretty good job of outlining the basics of the choices I had, and helped me stay on top of...

    Jonathan completed his PhD in Marine Biology in March 2019, at The University of Western Australia in Perth

    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...

    Studied: Masters in Social Work (Professional) University of Auckland

    After completing my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the University of the West of England, Bristol back in 2008, I never thought I would find myself back in academia again. Knowing the work that is involved and the fees that are required, I really questioned whether the benefits would ever outweigh these costs. However, having spent some time (18 months) living and working as an English teacher in South Korea I quite liked the experience of living as an expat immersed in another culture and...

    Rachel started studying the Master of International Security at the University of Sydney in 2019

    Study Options were genuinely invaluable in supporting me throughout my application to the University of Sydney. Stefan, Carla and Sarah are experts in the field and even in the unlikely scenario they do not know the answer to a question, they ensure that they put me in contact with someone who does on the ground. Aside from 'operational' support, Study Options also provide a vital bridge between London and Sydney which is especially important because of factors such as time...
