Exchange Opportunities and Career Ready!

I am loving the week off from classes this week… catching up on some much needed rest and coffee with friends.


Don’t get me wrong, I am still working on a major final essay due in Exam Block, and making study notes for exams, but the extra time I normally spend in class is now spent on pure relaxationing (yes not a word I know).

Or, while you don’t have to travel to uni for classes, take some time to explore a few opportunities available to you.


First up… Exchange!  Apply now to study overseas during Semester 2, 2018
