Student Reviews

Poor Academic standards- Low Part Time jobs- Bad quality of life
Frustrated International rated 1 out of 5 stars

Infact To study in Australia is an expensive one. Nearly around $40k. Just question yourself Is it worth to study your degree so expensive. Everyone knows Australia is depending on immigration mainly getting revenue from international students. When we come to talk about Toowoomba, it is located 1hr drive to Brisbane and just a small town. One thing you can’t expect to get...

Auzzie bloke looking for a buck or two.

I really like meeting people from other countries but there needed to be more platforms/opportunities in order to do so.
