Reasons to choose the University of Adelaide:
Jessie Gunson - United Kingdom
PhD in Gender Studies
"I had finished my Masters and was working as a research assistant in England when I started thinking about doing a PhD. I did some research into supervisors and found Professor Margie Ripper, who is one of the key researchers in my field. We started emailing and she suggested I apply for a scholarship at Adelaide, which I did - and I got it!
"Besides the reputation of the University itself, the other deciding factor for me was location. I was looking for a city that wasn't overbearing but was also a strong university city. There's so much going on in Adelaide and a lot of people don't realise how fantastic it is. I've enjoyed going to all the festivals, and as a wine lover it's been great being so close to so many famous wine regions.
"The support offered by the University has been fantastic. The Graduate Centre is a wonderful resource with absolutely brilliant staff - if you have any issues, you can just give them a call or drop in - they remember who you are and are always extremely helpful."
