It was a huge advantage for me to be able to study part-time and online, so I could continue my full-time job in Brisbane.

The best thing about studying online is the flexibility for sure. I can study anywhere, and at anytime. Living in Hedland means the only university options are in Perth, and my family are happy here. The ability to do my degree online is something I’ll be grateful for forever, as without online study I simply couldn’t do the degree.
