While living in Melbourne, students will be responsible for purchasing or preparing their own meals.  Grocery stores are located about 2 minutes from the residence halls, and all apartments are equipped with kitchens. Students will also need to provide their own cutlery, dishes, and cookware. While it may be an initial adjustment for students, with a little perseverance, cooking can become a bonding experience for flatmates.  

In the past, one of the most successful programs planned by the International Student Advisors (ISAs) was a Top Chef competition, during which students utlized their cooking skills and worked in teams to create delicious and eye-catching dishes using an Aussie-specific ingredient: Kangaroo.  The winning dish is pictured below!
