One of the services that was


of most help to me was the
CareerHub. They helped me to
write my resume and provided
me with interview tips. I really
liked the fact that all the lecturers
and teachers at the University of
Western Sydney and UWSCollege
treated both international and local
students in the same way, and

Master of Convergent Media

The atmosphere in the classroom is very flexible. I can communicate with


my tutors even after the class. Only after I chose this course at UWS, I really
understood the course structure on creative thinking and media production. The
course is well structured and the campuses have fantastic facilities, especially
the library. Personally for me it is so convenient because I can borrow a book
from any campus and return it in another campus. I love my course at UWS!

ISHAN KARANJIT

Bachelor in Information and Communication Technology

My course is very practical here at UWS, my teachers help me a lot and it is going
smoothly. UWS campuses are really big, very spacious. The libraries are equipped
with all the latest technologies, and the computer labs are very modern and well-
equipped. If you are considering coming to Australia, there are challenges, but
the teachers and staff here at UWS will help you throughout the journey!

FLORIAN STOLZ
GERMANY
Sydney Graduate School of Management
Master of Business and Commerce

The best thing I liked about the course


at UWS was that we had a small class
size. So we had an opportunity to talk to
the teacher, it was always an interactive
session. We had the opportunity to ask
lots of questions, the teachers were always
well prepared and experts in their fields.

MANEESH MATHAI
INDIA
Master of Information and
Communications Technology

I found that the units of my course in


UWS were very much aligned with
the real world needs of the industry.
The academic approach with focus
on practicals as well as research
investigations blended into the units
forced me to think and implement
independently and analytically.

LUH (MICKE) ANGGRAINI


INDONESIA
PhD

UWS is an excellent campus; it is a nurturing place to study with a wide range of


modern academic facilities. Its location and access to public transport in greater
Sydney are also of advantage. Food outlets and cafes are available in every campus
with many food varieties. I have been actively involved in campus leisure activities
through the UWSConnect programs. UWS also provides students with on campus
accommodation that is UWSVillage where I spent the first six months in Australia; it
was convenient student accommodation that I highly recommend to new students.
