“I re-discovered my passion for teaching whilst working in media. The first day flew by and I remember thinking ‘this is where I was always meant to be’. The lecturers create opportunities for us to build on our theory through interactive classes that have us creating lessons with our classmates. Swinburne’s course goes above and beyond.”
