Australia's climate and natural beauty drew Ayako Sato to the University of the Sunshine Coast.
"It is a safe region with beaches and good weather," Ayako says.
Staff at the University helped Ayako with visa procedures and lecturers were always on hand to answer questions.
"I found lecturers from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences to be very helpful and considerate of language difficulties faced by international students," she says.
Ayako took advantage of the University's Homestay Program and stayed with a local family near the University campus.
"Homestay was a great opportunity for me to experience Australian life," says Ayako.
For anyone considering studying at USC, Ayako offers this advice:
"If you would like to stay in a small city near nature, then choose the SunshineCoast. In regard to quality of university academic staff and support, I recommend USC."
