Manisha Biswas came to CMUA in 2008 because of its first class reputation, world class faculty and facilities.
“CMUA’s academic reputation was one factor. The other factor is that Australia is a tolerant multicultural society. I wanted to study with Australian and international students. I will be working with people from all over the world, so I want to understand the way they think, they work and their cultural background,” Manisha says.
Manisha was fascinated by pictures of Australian flora and fauna on the Discovery Channel. 20 years later she is studying for her Master of in Science in Information Technology (MSIT) at Carnegie Mellon Universityin Adelaide.
Manisha was surprised to hear the negative stories from Melbourne about allegations of poor treatment of Indian students.
“I feel at home here and a part of Australian society. There have been times when I had to leave CMUA late at night but I never had any problems. I feel safe.”
“Australia is a big country with very friendly and helpful people. You will learn lots. After one year your perspective about life and people will change. CMUA standards are very high but that is good.

Murali Rajendran is highly impressed with the lost of education in Australia and very high quality standards.
“I have lived and worked with different cultures, having spent 15 years of my childhood in Kuwait, living in an Indian family tradition. I also visited the United States during my undergraduate years. But when the time to choose my destination for my Masters degree came, I did not hesitate on studying in Australia. The chance of living in Australia and studying at a world class institution like Carnegie Mellon University Australia was one of the motivating factors during my university selection process. The other factor was plain curiosity about the land down under!
I was informed by friends and relatives that Australia was a fine place to study and work. That turned out to be an understatement. The Australian way of life – as I soon learnt – was more than what meets the eye. I am experiencing one of the most culturally enriching periods of my life.
People here are smart, cheerful and hard working. The society as a whole is a blend of various diverse ethnicities, and everyone has the freedom to preserve and promote their culture.”
