I wish to study in Melbourne from February to June in 2015

I am quite terrified of Spiders, even the ones we get in England, so you can imagine what my major concern is.

So is it possible I won't see any? I'm not too worried about the outdoors, just not sure if I could cope if there are spiders in my student flat

Thank you

Melbourne is a busy town and not open countryside. Any spiders that do turn up there will be nothing more than you get back home and a dose of bug spray will take care of them.

That's great. So I shouldn't expect those huntsman?

You’ll be fine, I can’t remember seeing one spider in the 4 months I spent travelling and then six months I was working in Australia. Regardless you shouldn’t let a fear of spiders stop you doing this!

Thanks very much Steve, put my mind at ease. I'm moving on with my application now.

Thanks again
