From the moment I talked to the team, I had no doubt that WEST 1 would be with me to achieve what I always I dreamed.
Studying abroad was always a dream, but many times I thought it was not possible. So when I finally decided to LIVE what I always dreamed of, I researched and talked with people who have already experienced this experience. A friend, Stephanie Arruda, who happens to be working at WEST 1 in Sydney, referred me to WEST 1 in São Paulo, and from the first moment I talked to the team, I had no doubt that the agency would be with me to achieve what I always I dreamed.
During the process, I went through various fears and doubts (language, financial and family matters), but for honor and Glory to God, everything went well.
The big day arrived and I finally met Brisbane. I confess that this place exceeded my expectations. Every corner is perfect, the people are friendly and the weather is WONDERFUL.
Studying abroad is a unique experience! Apart from learning with a different language, you learn about other cultures, new places and, most importantly, you discover who you are.
In this journey not everything is easy, because every day there are new challenges to overcome, for example: the search for your first job, the difficulty with the language and the absence of family and friends that we leave in our home country.
In these moments, it's great to know that we have someone to rely on. WEST 1 has always helped me in all these challenges, having an agency in Brisbane makes all the difference. When I needed help finding a job, they were there; when I needed a friend's shoulder to talk about my fears, they were there with open arms to give me strength, especially Guilherme (so cute).
I am very grateful to God, because I feel that all choices were perfect and incredible people appeared on this path. In fact, a trip like this requires a certain investment, but every penny is worth it.2019-05-19 19.05.2019
Although it is not an easy road, with discipline and effort and the help of an agency like WEST 1 you can realize the Australian dream.
Coming to study in Australia was a desire and a big challenge for us a few years ago when we were in Mexico.
We were not very aware of the process and in general what life was like in Australia. Although we went to some talks in our country and contacted some education agencies in Mexico we really did not know what we should do.
Looking for information in forums and on Facebook, we were able to meet Indira Jaimes from WEST 1. From the beginning, she showed a lot of willingness to explain what the process was like and to guide us about the lifestyle in Australia and all that is needed as an international student.
Since we arrived in Sydney, Indira was in contact with us, helping in many aspects such as medical insurance, induction course in school, Workshop to find work, make payments to the school, etc.
It has now been almost two years since we arrived in Sydney and thank God and the support we have had from Indira and WEST 1, I have finished my Diploma in Community Services, I am working in an Organization that helps people with Dementia and I am a few months of signing an employment contract with them, also my wife is studying English at a school.
Although it is not an easy road, but with discipline and effort and the help of an agency like WEST 1 you can realize the Australian dream.2019-05-06 06.05.2019
An excellent agency!
An excellent agency! The service is of extreme quality. From the beginning giving all the support so that each step was performed in the best way. When I arrived in Brisbane I attended the "Welcome to Australia" at WEST 1 Brisbane, where I was given the necessary information so that I could start my journey in Australia. I recommend to all my friends and I will definitely extend my studies through WEST 1.2019-05-02 02.05.2019
A sensational team.
I have planned my trip with extreme details, and I can say that I got great help from Dani from WEST 1 Campinas. She helped me plan all the details and complete these details successfully.
And arriving here in Brisbane, I can count on WEST 1 Brisbane, especially Guilherme. A sensational team.2019-05-02 02.05.2019
Congratulations to the team and my thanks for all the support ever!
Australia has always been a place I always wanted to go since my adolescence. And the WEST 1 team made it all possible!
The staff was super helpful and attentive since when I was still in Brazil. I participated in online Workshops at no additional cost and without the complete certainty that I could make my study abroad program.
After a few months of research and planning, everything came to fruition! And arriving here the service continued with the same quality! Anyway, all the care and attention with a student in a foreign land remained extremely competent, especially in an emergency situation. I recommend WEST 1 with total confidence that the team is always willing to help to the maximum! Congratulations to the team and my thanks for all the support ever!2019-05-02 02.05.2019
WEST 1 promotes various workshops, seminars, meetings and it makes a lot of difference.
When you come to a new place, so far from home, you need to feel safe.
Not only emotionally but professionally as well.
Having support from an agency that knows how to understand our feelings (fears, doubts, and uncertainties) and can also help with the bureaucratic issues as well is very important.
I've always had all the support from WEST 1! No matter what, I know I will have the support I need and that is priceless!
More than an agency, we feel part of a place, make friends and know that there is someone to whom we can run. WEST 1 promotes various workshops, seminars, meetings and it makes a lot of difference.
They help you to do a resume and find job opportunities. Things that seem simple, but only those who live abroad knows how important this help is.
I chose Melbourne and today I am completely in love with this city! Without doubt my adaptation was much easier thanks to all the help I had from WEST 1.
WEST 1 Melbourne is incredible, I have no words to thank everyone who works there. They are part of my story in Australia.2019-05-02 02.05.2019
With the team at WEST 1 in Brisbane, it's so much easier! Thank you for everything!
I am very happy with the services provided by WEST 1, especially with Gui and Thais, they are like my family in Australia. Everything I need and what I did not know I could need, they are readily willing to help. The staff is very competent and trained, it goes beyond expectation because when you imagine yourself on the other side of the ocean, alone, it is difficult to know the challenges and difficulties you will face. But with the team at WEST 1 in Brisbane, it's so much easier! Thank you for everything! Thank you for making my dream come true and for your patience with me! Love you!2019-05-02 02.05.2019
Luna helped me through the whole process and made sure it was as smooth as possible.
WEST 1 was very helpful in supporting me with my transition to studying in Sydney. Luna helped me through the whole process and made sure it was as smooth as possible and my visa was granted on the same day! I genuinely couldn't speak highly enough of WEST 1!2017-08-29 29.08.2017
I could meet people from all over the world.
I have been in Australia for 27 weeks where I could meet people from all over the world. Japanese, Korean, Swiss and South American citizen as well.
It was an amazing experience due to the fact that I had to walk a lot so one of my tips is: always wear a comfortable pair of sneakers otherwise you can get some hurts in your feet.
During my staying days I could see kangaroos what I have never thought to do in my life.
My host family was so kind. They never left miss food or structure to feel like in my hometown.
My main tip is if you want to improve your English you should go to the best school because I saw some Brazilians who I have met outside of the school complaining about the school's structure. On the other hand, if you want to go to earn money you can go to any school.2017-08-29 29.08.2017
Thank you so much, Luna, WEST 1 and my friends in OZ that recommended WEST 1 to me.
I've always wanted to live in Australia since it is such a beautiful country with amazing wildlife and nature, the climate is so much better than in Germany and the people here are unbelievably friendly, easygoing, worry-free and lovely! I've been to Australia already several times to travel and get to know the country but didn't know how I would be able to stay and work here (I'm too old for the work & travel visa). With the help of Luna from WEST 1 in Sydney, I got a student visa for 3 years, study at a great international college that has campuses in Sydney (CBD, Bondi and Manly), Melbourne and Brisbane and I am allowed to work around my studies. Thank you so much, Luna, WEST 1 and my friends in OZ that recommended WEST 1 to me, for making my biggest dream come true!2017-08-21 21.08.2017
Without this partnership with WEST 1, I believe the path would be a little more painful.
Wow, I'm having a unique experience in my life, crossing the continents and arriving in this wonderful land, it is all good and my journey is just beginning. I've been here for a week and I've already had an idea of the challenges and achievements we will have "together". I say "together" because, without this partnership with WEST 1, I believe the path would be a little more painful. Thanks for the affection and concern from all this team from Brazil and here in Australia.2017-05-29 29.05.2017
Since when I started researching I was very well guided by Igor from WEST 1 São Paulo.
I'm loving my experience in Australia.
Since when I started researching I was very well guided by Igor from WEST 1 São Paulo.
When I came to the school they welcomed me very well and Walter from WEST 1 Melbourne helps me with everything I need. I highly recommend WEST 1 for everyone. Thanks to the entire team of WEST 1 São Paulo (Igor, Camila, Mariana, Tom, Iago) and WEST 1 Melbourne.2016-09-04 04.09.2016
Congratulations on the excellent job!
It's been amazing, and WEST 1 team gives all the support I need and a little more. Congratulations on the excellent job!2016-04-29 29.04.2016
The team is helpful, committed and responsible for making my dream come true.
Beautiful city, weather similar to that of Brazil, receptive and cheerful people. Finally, a Brazil that worked. I came twice before deciding to live here and the help of WEST 1 was crucial to make it a reality. The team is helpful, committed and responsible for making my dream come true. Thanks, mates!!!2015-04-30 30.04.2015
They are always willing to help no matter what.
I've been living in Australia for just over 3 years and it has been the most incredible experience ever.
I've met people and places that I will never forget. I have always been thankful to WEST 1 for being so good to me, even before I got here.
Since São Paulo, the whole team has been super nice, incredible service!!! I have always been happy about choosing WEST 1 because nowadays although I am not a student anymore, they are always willing to help no matter what. My sister is now moving here in September and has also done the whole process with WEST1. She's been extremely delighted with the quality of customer services that WEST 1 has provided.2014-08-06 06.08.2014
I want to thank you all at WEST 1 and especially Cintia
Hello guys! After more than 40 days living outside of Australia, hoping that my visa was approved, I finally returned. WITHOUT RESTRICTION!! All because of the girls from WEST 1 Perth (Cintia, Carol, Viviane, and Dani Koala). Because my previous visa was super complicated, NO FURTHER STAY, which prevented me to renew within Australia and no agency wanted to take this risk, everyone said I could not renew it and even get rid of the restriction... I want to thank you all at WEST 1 and especially Cintia who took my case because if it was not for this angel I would be in Brazil right now. Cintia, THANK YOU for a mixture of immense professionalism with the zeal you have shown for me (and all of your clients) to be helpful all the time and to solve my problems (and there were quite a few). Actually, you still keep supporting me ... lol And I want to take this opportunity to wish you my sincere good wishes on this special day. Happy Birthday!!! PS. I'm not disparaging the work of other agencies because I believe they all have excellent professionals, I'm just saying that WEST 1 IS THE BEST!!!!2014-04-29 29.04.2014
