Bachelor of Commerce (Marketing)
I studied briefly at Macquarie University and Newcastle University. Neither of these universities felt right to me so I decided a smaller campus might be the way to go.
My university experience was amazing. I made a great groups of friends and I found that ACU had a great social environment. Academically the tutors and Head of School took a real interest in my development. They were always available when I needed to chat.
I like the fact that it was a smaller campus and the university seemed very hands on with the students, offering extra help to those who asked for it. I also liked the fact that they focused some of the learnings around corporate and social responsibility.
Yes definitely. I would say I had some lecturers and tutorial teachers who went above and beyond their call of duty to help me. There was a time that I was on the phone to my lecturer at 7am because I was having trouble before an exam. It really felt like their main priority was making sure we did well.
Get involved with as many university activities as you can. They are a great place to meet friends and to really feel like you belong to your university. I would also recommend making an effort to introduce yourself to your lecturers or head of school - they are great supports.
I volunteered with the Edmund Rice Camps and it definitely gave me something to talk about in interviews that set me apart from other candidates. It also showed passion and commitment which really helped me to be chosen for an interview.
I currently have a position in an advertising agency. I love this industry, no two days are the same. The coming together of like-minded people who are constantly testing the limits is truly amazing. I can safely say I have never been bored at work. In the future, I would like to see myself as the managing director at an agency that is creating great campaigns that benefit the world.
