“I did a lot of research before deciding on Melbourne,” says Jatin.
“I found that of all the universities RMIT had the best reputation in the field I wanted to work in [engineering], so I enrolled in a Master of Telecommunication Engineering.”
Melbourne is seen as a leading knowledge city, attracting a number of international companies to set up research and development operations. It is also a major economic centre and the home of multinationals in many fields. Often postgraduate courses have strong ties to industry partners. It’s worth investigating whether your course offers opportunities to connect with industry through programs like internships or networking events.
Without doubt, Melbourne offers some of the best food in Australia. With people from so many countries now calling the city home, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
