2017大三出國輔導通報系統 - 留學心得報告[編輯]
觀光A 404860099  林芷妍   留學學校:南十字星大學(澳洲)

(一)基本資料

I study in Southern Cross University in Gold Coast, Australia. Due to the study program of Southern Cross University, there are three sessions for both studying and having internship. During the first session, I took four units related to tourism and hospitality. After the four months study, I started to do my internship at Peppers Salt Resort & Spa, which is one of the brand belong to Mantra Group.(68字)

(二)課程學習

My favorite lesson in Southern Cross University was professional development for the workplace. The class was lectured by Dr. Sharen Nisbet, also the teacher during my internship. I did several analysis about myself and knew my strengths and weaknesses. Moreover, I considered the assessments were very helpful to find my internship later. I learned how to make a professional cover letter and CV, not only useful for the time I am in Australia but also for my future career. In my opinion, one’s cover letter and CV are really important because they are the first impressions for the manager. On the other hand, I also recorded a video CV. After I submitted the assessments, Dr. Sharen Nisbet gave me feedback. I then modified and made better. I used all the knowledge and skills that I learned when I was looking for the internship after that session. The course is necessary to attend the internship session in this program. I had to do the work and submit the assignments at the same time. Although I think most of those assignments were not helpful while working. Due to different types of companies and roles, several concepts were hard for some students to make the best of the goals. We are the bottom line of the employees. Therefore, I don't know the details of the management stuff in such a big company. I would like to suggest that teacher can focus on the assistance for students who have problems during their internship. Especially the international students that are not familiar in the foreign country at the very beginning. However, having this opportunity to work abroad, I have learned a lot and gain much more experience. Professional development for the workplace and internship are the best course for me in my junior year in Australia.(302字)

(三)生活環境

Before the official courses, there was a week oreianta which students ambassadors show you around around the campus. Several interesting events were hold to let new students understood whole system operation. These made me got into the new environment easily. Also, student association hold plenty of party for all students that make my time in school much more fun. Notably, there are many international students in our campus, so I can meet people from many countries. When you have problems, teachers here are willing to give you a hand. I choose to live in home stay when I arrived. But I don’t really like the way and it was quite expensive. Therefore, I moved out and lived with Nora and Michelle. We found the unit on the student accommodation website, which was really good. It take about fifteen minutes to Southern Cross University. However, I moved again because it was too far from Kingscliff, where I do my internship. I lived with Michelle and the house owner. Supermarket and bus station are just two blocks away. There are not much attractions in Gold Coast, but it would be paradise for people who enjoy the sun and beach. The views are gorgeous that many Australian would spend all day and relax at the beach. The weather here is definitely different from Taiwan. Remember to bring a coat when you go out. Especially during the wintertime, the temperature can drop dramatically at night these days. Compare the food from Taiwan, the prices are high and not that much choices. All the shops and mall closed around five p.m. The lifestyle is really different that I took times to get used to it.(282字)

(四)自我成長

After the year stayed in Australia, I found out that the lifestyle is really different from Asia countries. First of all, it was hard to find a property to live without helps. Thanks to the school that offer a platform online for students to look for places to live. I had try to look at the agency, but this way takes time and you can’t really find one suitable. Especially I didn’t have car to travel, hard to reach other places in this huge territory country. The public transportation such as bus and train usually are not on time and no signs that tell when would it arrived to the station. The tickets are also expensive, even for student concession prices. Due to my workplace, there are no card can be used in New South Wales when taking bus. I can only pay by cash, it was really inconvenient . Moreover, it was hard to find an ideal internship in Australia. Most of the companies are likely to hire people with experiences, this made me hard to get the opportunity. The lectures and assessments styles are really different too. Teachers won’t teach you a lot, but you have to work hard by yourself. The assessments’ references were the most difficult part for me while studying abroad. All of the experiences made me learn a lot. I turned into an independent and responsible person. I would like to thank my mother for giving me such a chance to study and experience different life in Australia.(256字)

(五)大三出國建議

Although there are both positive and negative reviews in Southern Cross University, I think it is still a good experience for me to learn how to solve problems. All the obstacles might be the same in my future career. Trying to be positive and don’t be afraid to try new things. I always believe that I only live once but if you do it right, once is enough. Don’t make yourself regret in the future. Although it is really busy doing assessments and working at the same time. Planning some unforgettable trips for you are also important. The other thing is well time management. Don’t rely on others too much. People might give you promise, but what if they don’t put into practice. Studying in foreign countries is not only the knowledge that we learn from school, but also know the reality of the society. The last but not least, try to make a strong friendship with your classmates. At home one depends on his parents; abroad, he needs the help of his friends. Honestly, my life in Australia would be awful without the company of my friends. We hang out or even travel together during our break time. These are the most memorable things when I think back the time I was in Australia. Remember to act like an adult, no one will remind you things to do anytime and anywhere. I believe that you will grow up a lot after the year. Just enjoy and try the best in this lovely country. (258字)
