The opportunity to gain hands-on experience while studying at Swinburne has benefited my career. I've completed work experience as an assistant editor and marketing assistant. I met lots of new people, improved my writing and editing skills and learnt some marketing and advertising lingo.
Studying media and communication
Throughout my course I've been challenged to make and take opportunities for myself, which has been extremely rewarding. I've just started a work placement and it has provided a clear link between what I've learned in class and what I hope to achieve in my career.
At Swinburne scholarships are about providing opportunity, promoting equity and recognising excellence and achievement. Scholarships are available for both commencing and current students.
