Thomas Remont, an Advanced Diploma of Accounting student, has thrown himself into life in Perth, winning him the International Student of the Year Award at Central’s Student Awards 2015. In addition to his work as a volunteer international student ambassador for Central, Thomas is also involved with a variety of organisations including Friends of Kings Park and WA Aids Council.
Thomas’ leadership skills match his natural energy and enthusiasm for life as an international student. He has enjoyed the cultural diversity Central offers. “Studying at Central Institute of Technology has really opened my horizons and exposed me to other cultures. We are lucky to have such a diversity of different cultures.”
Thomas has advised friends from overseas to come to Central, “not only because of the quality and recognition of the training, but because of the atmosphere and environment of study”.
Thomas made a conscious decision after moving from France to be proactive in his new environment by being involved in the community and different organisations.
With this strong social conscience, Thomas’ long term career goal is to work as an accountant for a non-profit organisation, such as an environmental or community services organisation.
EDITORS NOTE: Thomas has recently won the Council of International Students in Western Australia (CISWA)’s 2015 International Student of the Year Award. Congratulations Thomas!
