Hello, Brisbane & QUT!

Hi there, I am Hao from Taiwan and first I would like to thank that QUT gives me this chance to join this fantastic blogger team!

When Jacaranda was in blossom last year, I came to Australia for my master degree. It was also my first time here and there were many interesting questions that my friends and family in my country asked me. The most impressive one is

“Do you see kangaroos or koalas on the streets?” (lol)

Fortunately, I came here and studied in EAP course before postgraduate courses. QUT organised wonderful orientation events for international students to experience Australia various features. I really saw kangaroos and koalas in one of events at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the biggest zoo in Brisbane, but not on the streets. Haha

Moreover, I also enhanced my English a lot in EAP course and met many friends from all around the world. There are thousands of international students studying at QUT and this is why I really enjoy this learning environment and choose this university.

When I feel confused, QUT is always on my side!

After I finished my EAP course, I got lots of useful and practical information which is relevant to common or studying life and joined many fresh activities to build amazing social networks during the orientation week of new semester. These arrangements relieved my pressure before postgraduate courses  and I could focus on my postgraduate life step by step without any worry.

    Hi Hao, i am a Chinese undergraduate and wanna apply for postgraduate courses of creative advertising, but i need to take gc courses first. i wanna know whether it is hard to pass gc course exams, and if i should fail, is there a chance to take makeup exams or retake the courses before studying the official master courses.

      Hi, Bo,
      I actually have only studied in EAP course but not GC course. However, based on my friends’ experiences, they said you can still have a make-up exam or study the course again after you are failed. Moreover, they also mentioned that if you follow tutor’s suggestions and study hard, it’s not really difficult for you to pass it. Good luck! 🙂
