I chose ACU because of its international credibility. It was scary to move countries, change careers and undertake postgraduate study, but boldness reaps its own rewards. It's been an incredible experience."

As I’m from Portugal, I wanted a degree that would be recognised internationally. Catholic universities are renowned all over the world, so I chose ACU because of its international credibility.

I felt really supported during my course, and found that the University acted according to their standards and values. ACU also helped me to refine my career path. The staff had so much practical experience and knowledge. They were an invaluable resource.

Postgraduate study allowed me to completely change my career path. I now work in online marketing and I love my job – every day is different. I need to be both creative and strategic, and my average day involves developing marketing campaigns for my company’s online store.

I love that I’m able to share my skills and experience with colleagues and contribute to my company. It gives me a deep sense of satisfaction.

It was scary to move countries, change careers and undertake postgraduate study, but boldness reaps its own rewards. It’s been an incredible experience.
