I have chosen to study at Macquarie University as it is an excellent renowned Uni with a national and global reputation, good engaging teachers, valuable and practical units, and you meet many different and great people from all around the world.

Surfing has been one of my passions since I was a kid, so living in Australia for a while has always been at the back of my mind. I saw the opportunity of moving to Australia to study for my master’s, and I took it. Once I complete my studies, I plan to go back to Spain for a couple of months to visit my friends and family and then come back to Australia with a Post-Study visa to find a job in my field.

In Australia there are good career opportunities, the country is beautiful, something different from Europe (where I am from).

Macquarie has a modern campus, good lecturers and offers good opportunities for graduates.

Once completed my Master, I would find a job in Human Resourses.
