What are your strongest memories while you were studying at the University of Ballarat?
Support of university lecturers, making connections with other students and overall it was a very enjoyable experience!
Do you have any advice about life after study to pass on to current students?
Going from uni hours to full time work hours is hard!! However, going from uni earning capacity to a full time wage is great! My advice would be not to take on too many extra roles within your first year out of university. People often expect you to do extra to 'prove' yourself but it is important not to get too snowed under with additional responsibilities.
