“The most enjoyable part of studying at Federation was the practical element, along with the discussions that followed. I have fond memories of people that I met along the way and I am grateful for the assistance and guidance from lecturers and tutors including Oscar Owens, Dara Twomey, Warren Young and Scott Talpey who I still keep in contact with.”
