UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN QUEENSLAND
He loves it so much in fact; he has become a USQ voluntary ambassador when visiting his Papua New Guinean home and has already encouraged two students to enroll in 2013.
As a third year Bachelor of Accounting and Sustainable Business student, Enoch enjoys speaking to prospective students about his experiences studying at USQ and encourages them to consider the university as an option in the future.
Enoch, who studied a Diploma of Accounting in PNG said he initially chose to study at USQ as his application was processed so efficiently by the university.“I’d heard about USQ through my brother who was studying at the Toowoomba campus,” Enoch said.
“I hope to become a business analyst or an auditor in PNG in the future and the program I’ve chosen will help me to assist my community and companies to be more reliable in their practices without overusing natural resources.”
Enoch has been voluntarily promoting USQ since he began his studies, and now takes boxes of promotional material home with him to hand out at open days.
“I distributed two boxes of magazines at the last open day and spoke to students about the high quality of teaching at USQ and even assisted some to fill in application forms,” he said.
“My best advice to prospective PNG international students is to work hard and get good marks in year twelve.
“For some students it is quite challenging undertaking university level studies overseas.
“‘I advise them to have confidence in themselves and trust they can make a difference in their community and country in the future.”
Springfield Campus Executive Manager Doug Fraser said it was wonderful to have a student as enthusiastic as Enoch on campus.
“We find many students come to USQ through word of mouth from current students who have enjoyed their tertiary experience with us.
“To have Enoch voluntarily want to share his experiences with prospective students in PNG and act as a touchstone for those students when they arrive to study at the campus is invaluable.”
