More about Lam
Can you tell us a little bit about your exchange to Australia?
“I studied Fashion Printing and Fashion Knitwear at RMIT University in Australia for four months. I met lots of new people and enhanced my understanding of diversity within the fashion industry. I experienced a different teaching style and diversified my design techniques.”
What was it about Australia that particularly appealed to you?
“Melbourne is a diverse cultural city, and I was very excited to be able to explore it. I think studying in Australia definitely helped me to enrich my personal growth."
How did you find the exchange programme application process?
“We were informed about the exchange programme via a number of talks and we then had the opportunity to apply. There were only a few spaces available at each school. We had to submit a portfolio and I was lucky enough to receive an offer.”
How easy was it to organise accommodation for your trip?
“Another student who had just returned from an exchange trip to japan stayed in my flat in Nottingham, which was really helpful for the both of us. Finding somewhere to stay in Australia was pretty straightforward as I was able to book student accommodation via the RMIT website or rent short-term accommodation in a shared house.”
