I studied a Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care at TAFE SA and enjoyed my time in Adelaide immensely.  I grew fond of Adelaide's beautiful streams between the suburbs, family-friendly environment and its vibrancy.  I loooove food, and there is so much choice in Adelaide.  Fun fact - the first time I've ever been hospitalised was because I ate too much.  It really happened!

Amy Almeida
University of South Australia
Australia

I've just completed a Bachelor of Marketing and Communication at UniSA and since being StudyAdelaide Ambassador, have been working as a social media officer!  What I love about my hometown is the lifestyle I can live in Adelaide.  It's easy to get around, has a relaxed pace and there's always something happening to go and see.  It's a fun place with lots of attractions both in an outside the city.  The festivals are one of my favourite things about Adelaide!  I also enjoy doing yoga in my spare time.

China

I completed my Master of Social Work at Flinders University and enjoyed my time so much that I know work there as a Client Services Officer!  When I first arrived in Adelaide in February 2017, I fell in love with the welcoming and dynamic city.  I love Adelaide because of its harmonious blend of traditional and modern features.  There are plenty of activities to enjoy as a student including Aboriginal ceremonies, diverse multi-cultural festivals, conferences and internship opportunities.  Adelaide is the perfect city for outdoor activity lovers and explorers like me thanks to its pleasant weather and green environment.  I am so glad to now call Adelaide home.

I'm studying a Bachelor Teaching with a Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Science at The University of Adelaide and I love the festivals throughout the year.  I play a rare traditional Chinese instrument and can often be seen busking in Rundle Mall!  I've been in Adelaide for five years now, studying high school at SA Government School - Glenunga International High School.  Adelaide is great as it lets me pursue my passion in music as well as engaging in leadership opportunities.  I'm still studying and will graduate in 2021.

Shubham Gupta
University of South Australia
India

I'm from Hyderabad and studied a Bachelor of IT at UniSA.  I did an internship at HappCo (Happy Inspector) in early 2019 during my studies, and now work there as a software engineer!  I love the fact that life's so easy in Adelaide.  Whether it's commuting to uni, work or even visiting the beach or the Adelaide Hills for a day out, all this can be completed with great ease.  A fun fact about me is that chocolate and coffee are my weaknesses - with Haigh's and Adelaide having the best coffee in Australia, I don't have to go far for either!

Alifah Putri
The University of Adelaide
Indonesia

I'm from West Borneo, Indonesia and studied a Master of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at The University of Adelaide.  What I love about Adelaide is the people!  They are very friendly and helpful.  You can walk across the street and easily find a stranger smiling at you or saying good morning to you!  A simple thing like that always makes me feel good.

Nacho Bosch
Carnegie Mellon University Australia

I arrived in Adelaide in August 2017.  I love Adelaide's green wide parks that surround the whole city, making it an extremely friendly city to enjoy outdoor activities.  I am colour blind, so I'm not sure if the beautiful parks are green or yellow!  I studied a Master of Science in Public Policy & Management at Carnegie Mellon University, and in 2019 I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a High Distinction.  I now work as a Marketing Consultant at Kudos Services in Adelaide.

Quynh Tran
The University of Adelaide

I think it was fate that I fell in love with Adelaide because I first arrived on Valentine's Day!  Adelaide is such a peaceful, modern but inexpensive city.  The public transportation is not only super cheap for students (including international students) but it has free routes like the city tram and connector buses.  I completed a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering graduating with First Class Honours in 2018.

Salina Shrestha
University of South Australia
Nepal

Namaste!  I came to Adelaide from the land of the Himalayas - Nepal in 2017.  I completed a Master of Social Work and are now working full-time in Adelaide.  I travelled to other cities in Australia but I like Adelaide the best.  What I love most about the city is the warmth and connection I feel from the people here.  When I first arrived, I was surprised to see people (strangers) smiling and greeting and coming forward to help you whenever you needed help.  This made me feel so comfortable even in a new country and culture.  As a student, Adelaide is very convenient and easy to get around; it's relaxed and peaceful.

Karen Figueroa
University of South Australia
Colombia

I came to Adelaide in 2018 with my husband to study a Master of Finance at UniSA.  Adelaide enchanted me with its vivid parklands that surround the central business district.  The city has a great advantage - it is easy to get around in such a short amount of time which gives you the opportunity to do plenty of things in the day.  Another highlight of the city is its affordability compared to other cities in Australia like Sydney and Melbourne.  Here you will find cheaper accommodation, food and services.  one of my hobbies is mountain biking and there are so many places to go with my bike!  Cleland National Park is one of my favourites so far with its steep hills and beautiful landscapes filled with lovely animals and challenging trails.
