Meet Ebrahim from Saudi Arabia, studying Engineering in Australia

UQ people
Published 11 May, 2020  ·  1 minute read

Hi, my name is Ebrahim Khalil, I'm from Ad Dammam, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I studied a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering at The University of Queensland. I was also a UQ International Ambassador and a Brisbane International Student Ambassador.

Why did you decide to study in Australia and specifically at UQ?

I chose UQ because of its reputation and quality of teaching, and to give me a better chance to get a good job.

What do you like most about UQ?

UQ keeps improving its facilities every semester.

It provides students with excellent knowledge and helps them improve their skills.

What have your experiences with the Brisbane community been like?

I arrived at the Brisbane International Airport for the first time in 2007, and the people who worked there were smiling like they knew me from a long time ago.

This made me feel comfortable and I felt like I was at my home.
