Hong Kong student John is on track for a career in cars after making the most of a challenging situation.
The impact of the pandemic hit the world hard soon after John had arrived in Perth to begin his international student experience.
Although the pandemic resulted in travel restrictions, John was among a group of students who continued to enjoy the relative freedom and comfort of studying in Western Australia, where COVID had minimal impact on the local population.
But after a long period away from his family in Hong Kong, and after seeing the evolution of Canning College’s online learning programs, he made the decision to return home.
John completed the WA Universities’ Foundation Program online and is now studying at one of the world’s best universities.
