Back home, I used to study a bachelor’s in logistics, and at the same time, I was working in a finance depart. 

My interest in the Hospitality and Hotel sector grew every day until I discovered the Southern Cross University (Hotel School) in Melbourne. The quality of the lessons is outstanding, tutors are really supportive, and students are involved in practical placement immediately.

Studying at Southern Cross University is an excellent opportunity to meet new people from different countries while you work and travel. I am unsure what to do once I complete my qualification; Australia’s hotel and hospitality sector is booming, with many career opportunities awaiting!

I have always dreamed of studying abroad since I was a young kid. After researching several destinations and Universities, I have happily decided to study for my Master of Teaching at Southern Cross University.

I would suggest studying at Southern Cross University for its teaching methods, passion and professional professors.

Since this year, a new teaching modality has been introduced for the benefit of the students, where instead of having 3 periods of teaching in the year, it has 6 terms. This way, the student enrols up to 2 subjects per term, removing a little bit of the burden of enrolling in 3 or 4 subjects simultaneously.

Now I plan to get my graduate visa and Work towards my permanent residence. Maybe go a bit further in my studies, specialising in special education.
