‘It’s a long flight’, says Oscar Ricardo Toro. ‘It’s over 14 hours from Los Angeles, and nearly 4 hours from Guadalajara’.
‘But it’s worth it’.
Mr. Toro is an Education Expert with Sofiri, and offers free course counselling to aspiring students with sofiri.com.
Today, Oscar is an education professional. But he was also once an international student himself.
From Mexico to Australia
‘I first came to Australia to study a Master of Information Systems in Melbourne’, says Mr Toro. ‘I think education here in Australia is excellent, because your teachers will genuinely want to help you to think and learn’.
‘It’s about more than just getting good marks or grades – it’s about teaching you real skills that will help you in the real world’.
‘You should be thinking about more than just your graduation certificate. When you’re choosing what to study, you should be thinking about what you want from your future career, and how your study will help you get there’.

‘The best question you can really ask yourself is: where do you see yourself in the years following graduation? Think about not only working in your first graduate job, but also where your qualification is going to take you in your long-term career’.
Making your study application
Regulations in Australia mean that making a study application can (potentially) be a lengthy and complex process.
If you’re making your study application yourself, you’ll need to spend some time learning how to navigate university or college application systems. You’ll also need to research what you need to provide in your application.
Alternatively, you can get an education counsellor to do all the hard work for you. For free.
‘If you want to know what your study options are in Australia, this is the best way to do it’, says Sofiri CMO, Rena Frith. ‘You start by getting free advice online from education experts like Oscar. They can then help you make an application, and with your visa’.

‘I’m looking forward to sharing my personal experiences with you as a former international student myself’, says Mr. Toro.
‘I can help you move through the application process quite quickly’, he adds. ‘I’ll guide you through the process, and tell you what documents you need in your application. I do recommend that you provide documents as quickly as possible. The sooner you provide them, the sooner you can enjoy this beautiful country!’
What it’s like to live in Australia
‘There’s a lot to recommend about living in Australia. The beaches here are famous for a reason. I’d suggest going to visit The Twelve Apostles beach and rock formations in Victoria in your spare time’.‘I’d describe Australian culture as extremely friendly. I love the quality of life here as it’s safe, salaries are very good, and transportation is easy – there are bike lines that mean you can cycle to and from school or work’.
