“The chance of a lifetime” are the words Sultan Bin Rubayan uses to describe the moment he received a prestigious scholarship from the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission.
“I was awarded the scholarship before I went to Australia – I didn’t have to worry about anything because it was all organised for me. It’s the chance of a lifetime,” he says.
“I really enjoy the course because it’s very practical and hands-on. We use AutoCAD to design in 2D and 3D, and we also study mathematics.”
Hoping to obtain a post-study work visa after his degree to gain experience in Australia, Sultan says the best part about studying and living abroad is the culture and lifestyle.
“For me, I feel like Australia is my second home. As an international student, my advice is to live your life and enjoy every minute.”
