In July 2014 I started my studies at QUT in Masters Business Advanced (Applied Finance) as an international student. Imagine the excitement, fear, uncertainty and millions of crashing feelings I felt when I first arrived to Brisbane from a 36 hour flight (Mexico City – Los Angeles – Fiji – Brisbane). My first impressions of Australia were similar to most of the international students : A paradise full of friendly people that you will not understand half of what they are talking about. Do they even speak English?!
