Lie #4: your preference is for life
Just like that ‘temporary’ tattoo you got in Bali that’s showing no signs of fading, it’s easy to think whatever you choose is permanent. However, Arlo found that wasn’t so.
‘If you go into something and you're not really sure it's right for you, it’s very easy to change. You don't really need to worry about your ATAR once you're in, you can move around, which was great.’
As did Bianca-Jaye, who also changed courses post-pandemic.
‘All the credit points I received online for the units I completed, I was actually able to put that into a minor. Swinburne made it so easy for me to transition over.’
Over the next few months you’ll continue be inundated by (often unsolicited) advice about your educational future but we’ll leave the last word to Bianca-Jaye.
‘Whether you know what you want to do straight away or it takes you some time, Swinburne will always be here.’
