Studying in Australia


When Shivi Bhalla first set foot in Australia, little did he know that he was destined for a mission — to assist international students in achieving their dream of living in Australia, and to ensure they overcome the hurdles of their transition.

Moving to a different country can be daunting and intimidating. While international students are excited for the opportunity Australia brings, they face emotional setbacks that range from fear, loneliness and job struggles. Being an international student himself, Shivi understands the challenges and pitfalls of living in a different country, but his vision and determination has enabled him to succeed and be the person he is today.

Studying in Australia: A guide to settling in, finding a job and permanent residency in Australia is a down-to-earth, no-nonsense book that throws in the right mindset combined with resources to ensure that living in Australia is a delightful dream.

The depth of information and research Shivi has done in this book is commendable, as is his way of explaining it in an easy to easily understandable way.

The tools and strategies he shares are worldclass and can be easily applied to all the barriers and issues that you might face. Shivi is a relentless leader and advocate for international students. This book is a gem and serves as an inspiration for international students migrating to Australia.

Shivi has uncovered what it takes and this is your opportunity to learn from the master himself Shivi Bhalla.
