Jolene - Malaysia, Bachelor of Law

I did a year of study back home before I came to Australia. I’d stayed at student accommodation in Malaysia and I thought I knew what to expect. When I arrived at Jane I was surprised to find an amazing place with amazing people. There was so much more support and people to help me to adjust compared to my time in Malaysia.

I feel like I’m well prepared for my life outside College but I don’t want to leave.

The first week at Jane was really fun by the end of it I enjoyed Jane more than Uni. The International students hang out together at Jane and I was able to meet people who were just like me. I was concerned about the details. What the food and rooms were like. What was going to happen when I arrive. I was able to relax and enjoy my time at Uni.

I’d never played team sports before I came to College and Jane gave me the opportunity to do that. It feels fun to be part of a winning team and it helped me to socialise with other residents. This was good because you don’t get to make friends at Uni as much. After two years I feel like I’m well prepared for my life outside but I actually don’t want to leave yet.

I was able to relax and enjoy my time at Uni.
