Rio De Janeiro and the Australian bush

The Ecuadorian Ambassador to Australia, His Excellency  Raul Gangontena and his Deputy Head Ms Susan Chiriboga visited the University of Melbourne to meet with Ecuadorian students on Thursday 13th March. The Ambassador was interested to hear from students about their experience at the University of Melbourne. He also highlighted the purpose of the SENESCYT scholarship program and the role graduates of the program play in helping the development of Ecuador.

“Attending class here is an indescribable multicultural experience because most of the students are international and each contributes their culture, point of view, criticism and experiences. Here, we live diversity in practice and it is beautiful to open the mind to regions of the world little known to us, such as the Asia-Pacific region.”
