Can you tell us about your exchange to Australia?
“I studied Fashion Design and Drawing at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) in Australia. The course involved fashion, textiles, visual merchandising, drawing and animation. I was really excited about exploring illustration in more detail. The course gave me the ability to recognise and develop solutions to issues related to international fashion markets, as well as the current UK market. It also allowed me to develop my interpersonal skills, and learn how to handle new situations that take me out of my comfort zone.
“I have always wanted to visit Australia, so having the opportunity to study and live there is amazing. Fully immersing myself in the Australian culture seems like a much more exciting way to experience the country than a two week holiday.
“Securing accommodation there was easy as there were a series of useful accommodation links on the RMIT website. I booked mine with one of the recommended accommodation suppliers.”
