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.
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.
