HOW TO APPLY

Be What You Want To Be Video Transcript

I needed to be able to study in my own time, at my own pace. I had the flexibility to do that when I started mid-year.

MY STORY

When I first started as a mature-aged student I really doubted myself. Early on I was on the brink of giving up but my senior lecturer was really supportive of me and talked me into sticking it out. And I’m so glad I did.

Bachelor of Professional Communication

MY STORY

I had to work to support my children. So online learning was highly beneficial to me. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the ability to learn at my own pace and my own time.
