Scholarship at Victoria University

Macquarie has one of the most generous international scholarship programs in Australia.

Victoria University gave me opportunities that I initially believed I was not worthy of. I still have relationships with VU educators today, as I gained a contract academic position during my masters. While teaching, I followed their influence – to not just educate, but inspire students to see their own potential.

In Australia there are good career opportunities, the country is beautiful, something different from Europe (where I am from).

Macquarie has a modern campus, good lecturers and offers good opportunities for graduates.

Once completed my Master, I would find a job in Human Resourses.
