I learn a lot from the interactive discussions the tutors facilitate. They help me to stay really engaged through my course.I've seen how international and interconnected my career could be. I've been to Nepal on a study tour, seen politicians work in Canberra and attended many conferences that have bettered my network.I wanted a university that could embrace my personal hope and cater to my needs to help me be a global citizen. I feel like I'm already on my way.
