One of my favourite poems starts with the following words:
“As you set out for Ithaka
hope the voyage is a long one,
full of adventure, full of discovery.”
This words are such an inspiration to me. I feel my life is a journey, a journey in which I need to explore different countries and cultures in order to learn more about myself and everything that surrounds me. That’s why I decided to improve my English in Australia.

I came to Brisbane right after finishing my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry in Seville, Spain. I really love science but I needed a break afterwards. That’s why I applied for a scholarship from Study Queensland (Queensland Government) and ICTE-UQ… And I got it!
And now that I am living in this Australian state I am really enjoying its weather, its nature and its kind people.
However, what I really like most from Brisbane, and I am not kidding, is ICTE-UQ. I love coming every day to St Lucia’s campus, it is so beautiful! Especially for attending my English course at ICTE-UQ, Advanced English Communication Skills (AECS), that makes me wake up so early each morning full of energy and positivity.
My teachers are engaged and approachable; my classmates are from seven different countries and are really interesting and unique; and the topics we talk about are updated, dynamic and completely suitable for learning every day.
