Current student; Alumni; Student ambassador, PhD in Accounting
“Studying Accounting at La Trobe University has been a really rewarding experience.”
My name is Ustashia Pillay - I’m enrolled in a PhD in Accounting; my career goal is to work in accounting, with a focus on auditing and assurance.
Studying Accounting at La Trobe University has been a really rewarding experience, as it has opened up many opportunities for me. It was the middle point between finishing school and going on to a big and bright future career, in the study area of my choice. Throughout my time at La Trobe, I have had the opportunity to learn and develop invaluable skills, with the opportunity to study my PhD in the accounting field I am most interested. I have gained teaching experience by being a tutor, and am also a Student Ambassador.
As an Ambassador and a tutor, I am in a position to inspire new and current students, to reach their full potential at La Trobe; the way that I have.
La Trobe is not only a great place to study but also a place where you can pursue your interests, and be the difference! Teachers and staff are always helpful as they want to see you succeed. Incorporated in an environment of learning is also an atmosphere of fun and flexibility - you make friends from all disciplines and choose what and when to study.
