I chose to study at Griffith because beside being a renowned institution it has great financial support for international students. I was awarded the International Student Excellence Scholarship and this formulated part of my decision to study at Griffith. Education is a high value investment, especially as an international student! Without Griffith support, acknowledging my achievements in my undergraduate studies and believing in my capacity toward my masters, I would not be able to continue my studies.
