The Short Term Residency Program will provide paid residency to one scholar for a period of no more than 6 months. The scholar will be provided with an apartment deluxe along with all the other services and programs offered by Graduate House during their stay in Melbourne.
Our memberships association provides a platform to collaborate with, develop professional connections and partnerships with members from around the globe.
Australians are incredibly warm and friendly and helpful in any way that they can be,” said Allan. “Everyone here has bent over backwards to try and be as accommodating, warm and friendly as possible. Everyone we speak to: maintenance, Diana, people who just run into you in the halls, everyone has a smile on their face, everybody has a ready hello and that is the most important aspect of it, of the quality of life here. For the time that we’ve been here, we’ve been very happy.”
