I’m a PhD student in computer science and before moving to Australia 2 years ago, had never lived in a foreign country. It was hard to find accommodation in a new a country and culture and there were lots of rejections along the way. Having to worry about electricity and internet providers wasn’t easy either… I even ended up having to pay a few fines due to misunderstandings about contracts!
