    SMU has a lot of positives and I have found it really easy to live here. It is in a really great location that I feel safe and supported in. The facilities are really good, the accommodation is really comfortable and they have everything a student would need. Transport is one thing that I have found very difficult, usually getting mates to drive us somewhere if we need to go. This can sometimes be hard to find someone who is free but we make it work. The social life is nice and everyone here has been super welcoming. Even though it is a small school, the community is really great.

    Everything is ok except the cafeteria, the cafeteria is really bad. I only stayed here for one semester and encountered the epidemic again. My experience of studying abroad was very poor, but when there was no epidemic, there were many activities and the international students were also very good.
