What our students say

When Wendell Tiu was a fresh graduate of DLSU Taft, he realized his four years at DLSU was not enough to fully nourish his skills, and that mentally and physically, he was not yet ready to face the business world. “I realized I needed more experience… different experience, where I can grow and gain more knowledge to understand the society we live in.”

When Wendell’s father, an engineer, offered for him to study abroad in any country he wanted, Wendell was apprehensive. But he decided to accept this new challenge, knowing that not everyone has the chance for this kind of opportunity. He decided to face his fears and took a step toward a new adventure. Wendell explains “Studying abroad was a once in a lifetime experience, and the most important thing I learned was being independent.  I was able to stand on my own feet without depending on my parents or friends.”

When asked how he adjusted to living abroad, he said “Staying in a foreign country was hard for me because in order to succeed in Australia, I had to work and spend time developing my ability to cope with the lifestyle in Australia. Everything was expensive, and finding a job was hard. But through this, I learned how to save, earn, and budget my salary. I was able to live for 2 years by working hard to pay all my expenses. Life was difficult, but every challenge you deal with makes you a better person.”

Wendell recommends to anyone who has the chance to study abroad “Just go for it! I could tell you that it would be a wonderful experience in your life. It’s a chapter of your life that would mold you and make you a better person.”

He continues “I would like to thank Inter-Ed for helping me find a university in Australia that suits me, and because of this I was able to improve my skills in ACU. Thanks to them, the process was flawless. Inter-Ed processed my documents without a problem and gave me a lot of time to prepare myself before I went to study.”

“I graduated with a degree in MBA and MBIS. In Australia, It’s an advantage for me to find a job because in Australia having a higher diploma is a requirement for every company. It is a must if you want to be a manager. From now, I will find a job that suits my degree- a job where I can use all the knowledge I learned and my skills in solving problems.”
