International student graduations
Over 400 international students will graduate from Swinburne University of Technology this week.

Indian student Neha Kumar, who is graduating with a Master of Science (Honours) in Good Manufacturing Practices, will be speaking at the graduation.

She is one of around 150 Indian students finishing their studies at Swinburne in 2009.

“I moved to Australia to study as I knew it would give me an edge as a graduate because it is the only course of its kind in the world,” Kumar said.

“Studying at Swinburne also gave me the opportunity to share the classroom with many different people and I believe that these experiences will help me in my future career.”

Kumar plans to stay living and working in Australia. She is currently working full-time at local Chemical Manufacturing company, Loral Ipsum Australia.

“After living in Australia for over three years, I feel that it is my home. I love the culture, the people and even the ever changing Melbourne weather! I have many friends who have moved from India to Australia to study and we have all had very positive experiences here,” Kumar said.

Swinburne Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian Young, CEO of Primus Telecom Australia Mr Ravi Bhatia and Terranovate Group MD Mr John Craven will also be speaking at the ceremonies.

The international graduations will be held on 21 and 22 December at the Hawthorn Town Hall.
