2017大三出國輔導通報系統 - 留學心得報告[編輯]
觀光B 404860248  沈士涵   留學學校:南十字星大學(澳洲)

(一)基本資料

Southern Cross University in Gold Coast Australia. From 25 June 2017 to 21 June 2018. Enrolled internship program in this university. (17字)

(二)課程學習

There were some units I enrolled which are cruise management, hospitality management and internship program, etc. The most meaningful class for me is definitely internship one. That's pretty much the reason why I chose the uni here. It was kinda tough for me at first because I have to study and work at the same time. We have to understand that what the course requires at our workplace. The lecturers was really nice for us that they were always looking for any opportunities of internship positions for us. Maybe sometimes we did feel something different between what they told us before back in Taiwan, but overall was good experience for us. Furthermore, there was a class teaching us how to make a professional resume in English which is very helpful for us to find a job in oversea country. In my opinion, it's the most useful class to gain lots of experiences in this subject. It's not only about academic aspect but also practical. We can learn different things and skills from each different workplaces. After we had been working for a while, we would have to do the presentation sharing our different experiences which is good to understand different area of this industry. Also, we could report anything though they might not be able to help, we can still feel free to say anything we had met and they would try to solve the problems for us. I will recommend the internship class for the students who is deciding where to go for studying abroad in junior year. It is really unforgettable and helpful for my whole life experiences. If there is a chance to study in Australia, never miss out doing internship program here. I can definitely promise that it would be worthy studying and experiencing here in Australia. (301字)

(三)生活環境

The university I'm studying at is Southern Cross University Gold Coast campus which is just next to Gold Coast airport. There is pretty much nothing to do around the airport so I dunno why they built this campus nearby there. There is no student accommodation of this university so we had to find the places to live ourselves. In the first month in Australia, I stayed in the homestay which is 40 mins from the uni by bus. I got a really nice and fantastic host taking care of us. She listened to us about everything we met and took us outdoor on the weekends just like our mom. We have become friends now and it was really nice to meet her in my life of Australia. About the city I lived, Gold Coast. It's a tourist attraction where is really busy most of the time. The weather is really awesome that everyone goes to the beach all the time no matter in summer or winter. It's warm and hot in summer and cool and dry in winter. It's really easy to catch public transport in Gold Coast such as bus, train and light tram. It's also easy to get to Brisbane which is one of the biggest cities in Australia. At the beginning, the price of everything is so high for me but it became all good after i start working and getting the high wages here. It is a nice city to live in and i would like to move here and enjoy the life here.(257字)

(四)自我成長

I met lots of problems when I got to Australia. First of all, the way in studying is totally different from Taiwan. For example, we have to attach references in every single assignment even though reflection thing. It was really hard for me as we don’t really do that in our country. According to my observation, people in Australia study for what they need and they can choose what to study and focus on. But in Taiwan is like the university asks students to study some subjects which is useless. People can decide how long they gonna finish their degree and plan something meaningful in the future but at least 4 years in Taiwan. That’s kind of different culture between us. Also, the kids here start gaining working experience when they are teenagers. So the employers would like to hire someone who has more experience on working instead only studying and doing nothing like the education system in Taiwan. So it was really hard for me to find an internship job at first. After getting a job, it was the beginning of the hardest moment. It was my first time working in a whole English environment especially working in reception which needs massive talking in English with guests. These are pretty much what I met during the time I spending here. I did learn a lot and I’m appreciated about this experience. It was a good challenge for me to grow up from a kid to a real adult.

(五)大三出國建議

So again, if they have a chance to choose where can be doing internship program, I would highly suggest that instead only studying abroad for one year. I don’t think they can really learn something in the year. For me, once you live, study and work in a country by yourself, then you can totally understand what the culture is there. You won’t even have an opportunity to work overseas so why not take this chance and challenge yourself. Even though not choosing the one with internship program, enjoy the life in oversea countries and it will be an unforgettable experience in your life. Also I think it’s quite important to pick a country you like. Because once you like this country, you will feel comfortable to do everything there. And the first language of the country is also important. If you want to enhance your English, go to English language country then. Otherwise you will have to study in language school to learn different language which is not bad just depends what you want. Plus, I don’t think studying in language school is not useful though it can’t be transfer to degree back to Uni, you can make more friends from different countries and experience the life from others. Sometimes I’m jealous about students who study in language school. That’s pretty much all, hope you guys can have a wonderful time studying abroad and learn something from there. It would be worthy.
