“I worked full-time in Canberra while I was studying, it was challenging but at the same time there was a lot of support provided which made it a lot easier and more manageable. I did a mixture of learning, most of the course was online and then I’d do block learning where I would come up for a week once a semester. I found that really good because I got to meet people face-to-face and develop relationships. My teachers were all really supportive, even after I finished studying.”
