Student Review: Study Melbourne Information Day

We are RMIT Newintstudents and we are students from RMIT. We love food, shopping and talking about issues that affects students in Melbourne. We are also happy to help new international students such as yourselves.

 

We recently attended the Study Melbourne Information Day at Multicultural Hub, 506 Elizabeth St. Melbourne, organised by AFIS and the City of Melbourne. Although the entertainment was stellar, this is not what we were here for. We were here for information and the chance to make friends. And friends we made throughout the games played in the afternoon!

 

Some tips students got from that day were

* Do be careful of scams especially online ones

* Plan your career early from day one

* Volunteer for a not for profit organisation as that will increase your chances of getting a great job.

* Try and look for a job. Any job will do.

* Network with people you don’t know. All throughout the afternoon this was emphasized when we met up with many unknown faces

 

Many thanks to AFIS for organising this one.
