2017大三出國輔導通報系統 - 留學心得報告[編輯]
觀光A 404860693  童鈺雯   留學學校:南十字星大學(澳洲)

(一)基本資料

I was studying at Southern Cross University in Australia. The city that I stayed is Gold Coast. It is a beautiful city and also rich in beaches. I enrolled Managing Rooms Division Operation, Professional Development for the Workplace, Hospitality Service Management and The Cruise Business these four courses in the first session. The second and the third session were doing the internship. (62字)

(二)課程學習

For me, the most favorite and interesting course is Professional Development for the Workplace. The student who chose Southern Cross University will have to enroll this course. Because we were going to do the internship in next two sessions. The contents of this course are leading you on the best way toward your career in the future. We have a two-hour class per week. In the first hour, the lecturer will talk about different sectors of academic knowledge, for example, what are the personalities of a manager and a leader? The second hour will divide all the classmates into several groups. Then, we start some activities to evaluate what personalities do we have; besides, we can know we are suitable for a leader or a manager. I consider that doing activities helps students remember that difficult academic knowledge easily. Compared with only attending the classes, it is easier to make a deeper impression through activities. Meanwhile, our lecturer will remind everyone to preview the content in advance. Because if you clearly know what will be taught, you can interact with the lecturer and get involved the courses. The lecture works very hard to give us more information about knowing ourselves. Her name is Saren. She always keeps a friendly and nice attitude to interact with her students. She will not judge anyone's opinion but discuss with us. Sometimes she will arrange some guest-speech or invite some senior to share their internship who has previous experiences. I highly recommend this course. The first reason is that it isn't boring. The second reason is that it will help you to know another one yourself. Also, I think this course is very helpful for us to find an internship or a job after we graduate. We can understand our potential qualities and make us surer that we are good at which area. Mostly, we can know what part of skill or personalities we need to improve and achieve. (325字)

(三)生活環境

Our school is located in the most southern part of the Gold Coast and right next to the Gold Coast Airport. Although it is next to the airport, the sound insulation in the classroom is very good. It is not easily affected by the sound of aircraft taking off and landing during the classes. Our campus is small, but there are many places and libraries for studying. What surprised me was that this university does not have much club activity as TKU does. My accommodation started at the homestay. However, the cost of the homestay was too expensive. I looked for other rental room by myself. I changed the accommodations three times because of the location of my internship. All the rented room I stay are rented by local Australians, so I can practice English and learn about their culture. The weather here is fantastic. The winter will not be freezing cold, and the summertime will not be too hot to need an air conditioner. The shoreline of the Gold Coast has lots of beautiful beaches. Whenever there is no class in the afternoon, it is the best place to go to the beach and enjoy the sun. Transportation is also very convenient. If you are a student at a Queensland school, you can use the Go card to take student half price. Last but not least, the consumption in Australia is very high. Thus, I seldom eat outside. I always go to the supermarket to buy some food and cook myself, which will save a lot of money. (259字)

(四)自我成長

There are very big difficulties in foreign courses. There is a big difference between foreign education and education in Taiwan. Before we graduated from high school in Taiwan, we worked hard to study for a better university. During studying at university, we usually had a very easy time. However, foreign countries are not the same. They need to study hard in order to graduate. I would say this because the lessons I have taught sound like very easy, but there are a lot of assessments to do. We don't just have a lot of assessments, the difficulty of those assessments are harder than I was in Taiwan. We are study-abroad program students need to enroll at least four courses. I heard from the other students who have studied there for several years, they said, who takes four courses in one session is very brave and will be very exhausted. Because we only have around 14 weeks in one session, each of courses has 3 assessments to be done. Thus, the approximate assessment we will have is one per week. It is so stressful for me. What's more, even we finished the assessments, you probably may fail. I have failed several assessments, but I always kept a good attitude. I don't want to waste my parents' money to pay the tuition and I got failed. It doesn't matter if I didn't do well sometimes. Next time I worked harder to pass the exam. Eventually, I got all pass so far.(247字)

(五)大三出國建議

Many people may think that going abroad is a very enviable thing. In fact, you don't see our bitter experience behind the scenes. Everything you experience is not understandable to everyone, and each person's experience is different. It will become your unique nutrient to make you grow up. It is possible that you will not encounter any bad things in your year of going abroad. But if you have difficulties, try to find ways to overcome them. Once you overcome the tough time, you will realize the life should be happy but not disappointed yourself, especially you only have one year in here. You don’t have enough time to be sad. I will prefer to spend time on doing delighted things. I’m the one who’s not going well abroad. The difference between what I came here and what I expected was too great. The sense of loss was doubled. At the same time, I also hope that sophomores do not expect too much from abroad. Moreover, you must have more courage and confidence! In any case, to speak English confidently and courageously you will make a lot of progress for sure as long as you say it out loud. (202字)

(六)其他

I want to share my experiences on renting the rooms. I have stayed four different places during this year. There are two of them that I am particularly impressed with. The first one is homestay. Although it was expensive, I met my host mother. She made me feel comfortable and welcome. We are just like friends and share everything. After I move out, we still keep in touch, having dinner several times. She and her husband are going to visit me and Jeremy in Taiwan someday. I feel like she is my second mom when I study abroad. I can pour out my mind to her and she always gave me some advice that made me feel less depressed. The second place which I stayed is a family townhouse. There are a single mother, three little kids, and a puppy in their lovely house. Also, the other room was rented by another girl from Japan. I knew more about Australian and Japanese. Those people I met are the priceless treasure that I have gotten in this year. They are exactly the reason why I won't regret I chose to come to Australia. (However, I still regret to trust and chose SCU.)(201字)
