I am an international student in Animal Ecology at USC. Studying in an English speaking country was not easy for me. However, I have been traveling well thanks to my university support. I am always glad that I chose USC. It has such a friendly and supportive community I have ever seen.
l will be completing my fieldwork in Australia to learn about biodiversity, conservation, human-animal interactions, and the impacts of a changing environment through this course. In this curriculum, I am studying a wide range of marine and terrestrial wildlife, including sharks, snakes, birds, turtles, and whales.
I got to know about this college from an education agent and after that did a bit of research. I applied for it with no application fee. I chose this college because I like the location and tuition is fairly reasonable. my undergraduate background is the law which is kind of related to what I am studying right now. I was asked for a bridging course anyway.
I took IELTS for entering this program, which asked for an overall 6.5 with each section no less than 6. I provided my undergraduate credits as well. after that, I was asked to take a bridging course as they stated I haven't had any subject related study before. I ended up writing a letter to the college indicating that I can skip the pre-course.
Because it was the closest to where I live. And I managed to get in based on my Op score and the admission process was straight forward and to the point. I Applied for multiple colleges. However, this one I was successful in getting into the course I wanted for the first time. It also has a shorter time frame to complete the degree than some of the other colleges. The teaching is completed in a way so that everyone no matter their background can understand it and they give people the best chance of completing the subject by providing help to those who need it.
They try to work the placements so it's close to where you live. They try to allow for convenience for you. They are very understanding if you have specific requirements and they will do their best to meet them.
I choose to study at the University of the Sunshine Coast because they offer a relatively large variety of courses including majors and minor options. The course is only 3 years long so this gives me great convenience along with it being close to home.
First-year classes are ok, lecturers are a bit lackluster and hard to understand but further into the course become more interesting as you get to develop deeper into your chosen electives, majors and minors.
