“l love so many things about the university: the teachers are so highly skilled and experienced. the location – it is so easy to get to campus, and Sydney feels like home now. It always gets me thinking how lucky I am to live in such an extraordinary city with such a high level of mixed cultures. I love that the classes are smaller than the conventional big Universities, it opens a space for discussion and to better connect with other students and lecturers.”
