‘Upon Graduating, I landed a Full-Time Position as a Junior Graphic Designer in my dream industry – performing arts! I remember applying for this position and receiving an email from indeed.com stating “over 100 people have applied for this position.” I owe it to all the job interview prep from Swinburne and their help putting together my portfolio, I was so excited when I got the call!’
'The support level has been unmatched. ELAs, student advisors, anyone you contact is always there for you. I have never felt alone. There is always someone to reach out to, always someone to help, always someone you can lean on. I never felt alienated by my peers or teachers. Further, the online flexibility has been a game changer for me. I have no idea where I would be without the ability to study when and how I need to. I have taken my work interstate, overseas, anywhere you can think of. My current job requires at minimum a undergraduate degree, and I wouldn't be here without it. Additional opportunities have also presented themselves as a direct cause of this, which has been amazing.'
'I decided to study online in 2012 when my youngest twins were in Year 12 . I thought it was time for me to pursue a degree after bringing up five children and was a single working mum for eight years at that time. During my studies, I had to defer 2-3 times as my home life was getting very hectic. I believe that education is very important and I have instilled this to my children who are enjoying the benefits of having good education with excellent careers. I am very happy and proud to obtain my degree. My goal is to use my knowledge in management accounting and may use it as means to work from home.'
'I found my overall course excellent and I made some professional connections with some of the eLAs. All my eLAs were highly experienced and helpful throughout my degree. Contrary to on campus students I was able to organise my study around my work routine which I found it to be fundamental for my overall success. I was lucky to receive 3 offers for Honours. Five years from now I hope to have completed either a master or a PhD in Psychology.'
