"The 1st DUC was literally where everything happened and started for me. I can't fathom how the sequence of events since DUC has brought me to where I am now. Can't help but smile when I look back at my journey :)"
University of Melbourne
A word from us
We know it’s exciting and we know that it’s something you might have been dreaming of since forever. I mean, studying abroad and being given the opportunity to aim high, dream big and do the things others can only dream of is a pretty big deal! From now on, the sky’s the limit. However, we also know that excitement is also accompanied by anxiety, doubt and fear of the unknown.
“How’s the community over there like? What if I don’t make any friends?”
“Am I supposed to walk around yelling “G’day mate” 24/7?”
“They have rice in Australia right?”
“DO I HAVE TO COOK?! Please tell me grocery shopping is easy…”
Believe us when we say that we completely understand what you’re going through. When we were where you are now we probably never felt ready to leave the comforts of home, family and friends to exchange all of that for a whole lot of uncertainty.
What we’re here to do is to make it less scary and daunting for you. Having gone through exactly what you're going through, we’re here to help you guys out in any way possible, be it with advice on how to prepare to come over, or how to settle down once you’re in Australia. It could be as simple as coming to make some new friends so that its not so lonely and scary when you head over to Australia.
While university pre-departure events are really helpful and let you figure out how to prepare to study in Australia, what we’re here to do is to prepare you to LIVE in Australia. That really is what the Down Under Camp is about - come join us and you’ll thank us for this!
