"I started studying at Western Sydney University International College when I was 17, having completing year 10 in the Philippines. My aunt and uncle live in Western Sydney and it was important to my parents and me that I study and live close to them. The campus facilities have really helped me focus on my studies, manage my time effectively and understand my priorities. I’ve learnt that it’s OK to ask questions too. Western Sydney University International College is a great pathway program into Western Sydney University."
