Alexandre Rubial MonteiroMarketing Manager


My name is Alexandre, I´m a very pround paulista and Corinthians supporter. I like to travel, cook and be around my friends. I have lived in Australia since 2003, and as many Brazilian student I came to do my student exchange program to study English for 5 months, but since when I first landed in Down Under I realized that it would be hard to go back to Brazil. I always had the desire to spend some time abroad, but when I arrived in Sydney, where I have always lived since I came to Australia, I soon realized that it was the place to be. What I most like here in Australia is the simplicity of the day by day routine and the lifestyle. Here everything seems to be uncomplicated and more informal in a positive way, and the lifestyle itself, which combines the pace of a big city with the relaxed pace of the beach, makes me happy to stay and not wanting to go back to São Paulo.

I started work with international education when I became a educational consultant in 2007. It was very satisfying to share my experiences as an international student with other students that like myself came to study in Australia, however as I graduated in Social Communication with a Marketing background, as soon as I had the opportunity I started as a marketing manager in a company specialized in student exchange program to Australia.

Working at WEST 1, all I wish is that our students have the same amazing experience as I had, and that Australia makes them as happy as it has made me so far.
