Gan Yi from China, ACIC Student, 2008
To study and work in Australia.
Came to Australia at a young age of 17 with limited English skills.
Yi came to Australia in 2002 as a young 17 years old. He first started studying English and some pre-university courses. In March 2004, he came to ACIC for advice about his future studies and course selections.
Within a few months, Yi has successfully received a full offer to study a Bachelor of Engineering at UTS and officially began his university studies. He also had a chance to participate in an internship program with Emotiv Systems (a leading neuron interface technology R&D company in the world) as part of his studies. Yi is still working for Emotiv Systems whilst completing his studies as he was offered a part time position after the internship. He will be considered for a full time position after his graduation.
The Comment from the Student
In Aug 2004, I have successfully completed my pre-uni course, and then applied B.Engineering course in UTS, with a lot of help from ACIC which assisted and guided me on course selection, future career consideration, course application and visa Application. The effort from ACIC's senior consultant Eric Wu was much appreciated, as all these tough and complicated procedures would be a big pain if without his help.
