I arrived in Christchurch with a large group of fellow students from Sichuan in China. Having completed a one year bridging course at South West Jiao Tong University, I was looking forward to studying in a completely new and exciting environment towards a Diploma in Business Administration Level 5. Christchurch and New Zealand College of Business have definitely lived up to expectations. I have been challenged academically and personally which I believe has made me a better person. I have met many new friends in the college as well experiencing life in foreign country with my fellow Sichuan students. I have just begun the Bachelor of Applied management at CPIT. I feel confident that I am up to the challenge having been prepared so well at NZCB.
