Experienced teachers and good community on campus
With the current state of the pandemic in Australia, my official on-campus experience would have to postpone to next year. This is a loss for me, not just financially but educationally, as interaction is limited between tutors and me. Overall, my current study is OK but can be better; the rating will worsen as the lockdown goes on.
It was a wonderful experience which taught me new parts of life
