Bula, I am Sadhna Gautam, the International Students Officer at the University of the South Pacific’s International Office. Having been an International Student for 5 years myself, it is a pleasure being able to serve students from all over the world who choose USP as their study destination.
As one of the most recent additions to the International Office, and still being fresh from university, I believe I may understand the troubles and difficulties you may come across as students in a foreign land, and also should be able to provide valuable insight regarding how to make the best out of your time at any of our regional campuses. My experience as an International Student in Japan (to attain my Bachelor of Business Administration and Japanese Language N1 Level) has been a time of extreme growth and maturity for me and has helped me understand my own culture and people even better.
I hope that you are able to do the same, and am a firm believer that pursuing studies abroad makes for more open-minded and flexible people. So, if you haven’t already, go ahead and apply for USP now! I can guarantee you; you will gain more than just another academic qualification to add to your CV, rather you will gain a lifetime’s worth of memories and experiences to cherish.
