I really wanted to go to Australia, and I wanted to improve my English and change my career. I dreamed of working in fashion and for the first time in Australia I imagined myself doing that in an international environment.
It was very exciting and so new for me to study in Australia, and so different to Europe. The University of Queensland is such a good place to study: good teachers, good lessons, good structure and great extra-curricular activities.
I had the best experience, and one that lead me to rethink my future in Italy. It wasn’t just the different environment at UQ, it was the technology, the facilities, the healthy environment, the international experience and integration with lots of different people from diverse cultures.
These days I am now working as a Product Merchandiser for a premium high street fashion brand in London. It’s a very particular job, where I follow the life cycle of a fashion product, from sketches to choice of fabric through to production and the appearance of the garment in stores.
The ICTE-UQ course definitely perfected the business English language skills that are so pivotal to my current job.
