What do ambassadors do?

Kimberly Li

University of Sydney

Master of Occupational Therapy

Hometown: Vancouver, British Columbia

Bachelor’s degree: Kinesiology

Why Australia? What really helped me to decide that I wanted to leave everything behind and move to Australia for my post-grad was recognizing that there is no better time to do something like this than now!

Anthony Caiazzo

University of Queensland

Master of Physiotherapy Studies

Hometown: Waterloo, Ontario

Bachelor’s degree: Kinesiology

Master’s degree: Strength and Conditioning Coaching

I took it upon myself to fly over to Australia first (January 2018) to look at all the schools that I applied to. If you have the time and the funds for this, I would seriously consider doing that as an option. I find it better to making such a monumental decision by actually seeing the campus, life, and culture where you’ll spend the next 2–4 years. If you don’t, that’s perfectly fine, but just make sure you take a virtual tour, read comments and past student reviews, etc.

Cameron Bowers

Griffith University

Doctor of Medicine

Hometown: Littleton, Colorado

Bachelor’s degree: Anthropology

Master’s degree: Kinesiology

Deciding to apply to medical school in Australia felt right for me. I’ve always loved travel and I am deeply passionate about global healthcare. The lessons I learned going to university outside of my home country were far more diverse than I could have ever hoped. I know the same will be true for my education and life in Australia. I look forward to sharing my journey with you and showing you what life and medical school are like Down Under.
