This project is a small sample to explore an aspect of the “uni life” at the University of Wollongong. It all comes from a big question about the my curiosity about the BCM course and its students, as well as my experience as an international student in Australia.
The whole project is an assignment under the BCM212 course and is designed for BCM students to have first-hand experience on how to do research. Thus, though my research might not reveal a solution or cover a broad side of the topic, it is a valuable milestone in my studying abroad journey.
On this page, I will update the progress my project, as well as my contact details in case anyone who takes an interest in my project would like to reach me. I can be found at firstname.lastname@example.org and twitter (these are also displayed on the sidebar).
