Bachelor of Commerce (Finance and Marketing)
I chose to study in Malaysia for several reasons, one of them being the multi cultural society. It’s quite convenient in many ways and for me it offers an opportunity to do a standard, universally accepted degree at an affordable budget.
I was really pleased about the way the administration handled my enrolment, as I enrolled at the very last minute. I feel that they treat international students very well. Being away from home can be lonely and alienating at times so I appreciate the sensitivity shown to me from all my lecturers and staff.
I found everyone - students, lecturers and all the staff at Metropolitan College very friendly and accommodating. I am very satisfied with my choice (Curtin degree) because besides all that I have learned, it has helped me challenge myself and become a more confident and capable person.

As international students, leaving our homeland to another place to pursue higher education is hard as we know that there is no place like home-sweet-home. However, my life experience at Metropolitan College is a pleasant one that I can ultimately call home. Metropolitan College has been my comfort place of study for the past three to four years. It’s quite amazing how I could adapt to the learning environment here and bond so well with my fellow course mates, lecturers and the staff. The medium size college campus makes it a ‘hassle-free place’. Everything that you need is within reach. Most of the facilities are centralized in one place and easily accessible.
I enjoy and respect my lecturers because they are experienced and make learning exciting. I also like the learning approach here. We attend lectures in a large group and tutorial in a smaller group. I find the small group learning an interesting one because we get to interact with the tutors and fellow course mates more. Apart from that, if there are topics that we do not understand during the lectures, we can further clarify and find out more during the tutorial sessions. If I can write about all my experiences here, I could take a whole day or even write a best selling book. Metro Boleh!
