So far this year I’ve been to Egypt, Vietnam and Bolivia on assignment. With my lifestyle I thought I’d find study hard, but thanks to Curtin Online wherever I go, my studies follow. Doing a degree through Curtin Online really works for me. I didn’t really have any idea what online study would be like but Curtin Online is so much more than I expected. My lectures are pre-recorded, so I can watch them wherever and whenever I want to. Even on my mobile. Many tutors set aside time each week to keep in touch with their online students. I love all these opportunities to interact with my teachers and classmates. I’ve met awesome people, had some really interesting discussions, and even made some great friends. Most of the support services available to on-campus students are also available to me online. Unilife for example, is packed with academic guidance and support resources. As well as heaps of health and well-being services. No matter where I am, I really feel like I’m part of the Curtin University community. With Curtin Online, I’m working towards the degree I want.
