Why Liz chose to study with Swinburne Online
When Liz – a Swinburne Online Bachelor of Business (Accounting) student – realised her work colleagues had similar experience to her but the competitive edge of a degree, she decided to return to study to take her career to the next level.
She saw that in order to remain competitive and advance her career, she needed to get qualified.
“Swinburne Online is such a supportive environment and you have the benefit of studying at times that suit you with the combination of student and teacher interaction, collaboration and support”
Online teachers key to learning experience
Swinburne Online students are supported by online teachers – or eLearning Advisors (eLAs) – who have industry experience. Liz believes it is the support of the eLAs that is key to the online learning experience.
“The eLAs are approachable and friendly, and best of all they get back to you very quickly – unlike the experience I had when I studied through traditional distance education where there was not as much support.”
Swinburne Online’s eLAs are highly rated and continually reviewed to ensure students get the best possible support. All eLAs are also paired with a teaching coach, who can provide advice and assistance as necessary.
“To be honest, I was not sure how Swinburne Online would differ from traditional distance education and to say the least, my mind has been blown by the experience.”
Liz’s advice to anyone considering Swinburne Online
“I absolutely love studying through Swinburne Online and recommend it to anyone considering returning to study. The support networks are fantastic, the way in which the units are presented and prepared is excellent.
“The first step is always scary but you won’t regret it and seize every opportunity to interact with fellow students and eLAs. It is a real help and only furthers your knowledge.”
