“Coming to Australia was very thrilling and scary, but as soon as I landed, coming to Griffith University was very smooth. I started with intermediate English skills, so the service offered by Griffith University called EnglishHELP really helped me to improve. I could book this service every week and they were qualified staff who are really supportive to international students.”
