UWA student Farhan from Singapore

As an international student, studying abroad, it's a very big thing. It can be very scary and it gets very overwhelming from time to time. Taylors College - instead of just letting me jump straight into first year of university, which is a very big experience - they really helped guide me through the steps along the way. They helped me on my personal skills, meeting new friends in a smaller community first, and then exposing myself into a larger community later.
