'Studying virtually with ACU has been a wonderful experience. My lecturers are always available to provide support whenever I need it, whether it be questions about course content or assisting me to pursue my passion for research.

Aside from academic support, the university really takes care of students' health and wellbeing. They provide numerous tips on studying effectively and opportunities to participate in activities and events. This has allowed me to enjoy my university social life and make new friends despite the physical distance and differences in time zones.'
