Video Transcript: Andrea di Carlo

I started my journey in Australia with university - that's the reason why I got here in the first place. I felt like it was a great opportunity to come here and experiment with something that I've never been through before. It turns out it was the best decision I could have made.

I'm Andrea di Carlo and I'm studying International Business (as part of the Bachelor of Business degree) at the Southern Cross University Gold Coast campus.

[Southern Cross] is definitely on another level compared to any other university that I've looked at for my studies. The lecturers are into everything that they do. They love their jobs and you can see that during the lectures so it's a great environment. I'd say that now with the international business degree I can definitely take it wherever I want to and be hired by international companies. It opens up possibilities for wherever you want to go.

Something that I think really stands out compared to other universities is the environment of  Australian culture. It's something that if you haven't experienced it, you cannot fully understand what it's all about. That's what the whole experience is all about, you're not only getting a piece of paper at the end of it, you get a whole life experience.
