Understanding Australia by Sally A. White

Book Description

Understanding Australia is an invaluable daily guide for the large and ever increasing number of students who must survive the foreign study experience in Australia. It looks at all things an international student needs to know to succeed both academically and socially on campus. It includes advice about Australia's social, cultural and family life, the academic environment and what is expected, and the culture of Australian educational institutions. Practical advice is given about using public transport, finding accommodation, paying bills, using services and many other things to assist with daily life. This 2004 book speaks directly to foreign students as they struggle with the anxieties, fear, confusion and sheer culture shock of adapting to study in a strange land. Rather than just highlighting potential problems, this book provides strategies for survival.
