As an international student, I chose a university that has an inclusive culture, delivers consistent quality teaching and offers exceptional educational and technological facilities. For years, it’s been my passion to help children thrive through education. Studying at Swinburne is helping me achieve my goal of becoming a kindergarten teacher.
