Yuka Shigeno

Yuka, comes from Japan and studied Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) at Endeavour

My father, who was a doctor practiced Chinese medicine to save so many lives, passed away just after I graduated from University in 2003. This incidence drew my attention to an importance of alternative medicine which can be integrated with conventional medicine.

Lisa Kane

Lisa, 33, is from Runcorn. She’s just started studying dental nursing at TAFE Central Institute of Technology in Western Australia

“I wanted to study in Australia because I saw it as a chance to gain higher qualifications in my trade while studying in a different environment and system. I chose my college because it’s based at the main dental hospital in Western Australia, and therefore offers the best opportunities for practical experience. On the course I’m hoping I’ll experience different ways of working, get a greater understanding of the different fields of dental nursing and overall gain a much broader knowledge of my subject.

Clare Webber

Clare is 31, and from Kingston-Upon-Hull. She’s about to start studying Early Childhood Education and Care Level 5 at the Bay of Plenty Polytechnic in New Zealand

“I chose my course because eventually I would like to go into teaching and thought that this would be a great way into doing that. This course will allow me to study toward the degree in teaching and will be a great basis for understanding childhood needs in this country. My background in the UK was youth work, I find working with children and young people both rewarding and challenging and really want to have a professional qualification recognising this.
