Meet Jun

"Studying at Federation University Australia was a delightful experience of learning and unlearning, application and actualisation, within an atmosphere that is very open to diversity. The Master of Teaching (Secondary) program employs a holistic approach to maximise learning for every student. I also had a great opportunity to witness and practically apply classroom concepts in actual secondary schools having been on placement.

When I described the university to be open to diversity, I did not just mean diversity in skill and capabilities, but also differences in ethnicity and culture. As a student originating from China, I felt that my perspective is much appreciated and valued by lecturers and students alike.

All of my classmates are very approachable, helpful and warmhearted and such qualities are exemplified by all the teachers. These factors made it easier for me to comfortably finish group projects and ask questions if I had any.

I could not think of any better form of preparation for me to become an excellent secondary school teacher. This high standard of education is what I wish to emulate in my future professional practice."

Meet Nihar

"I’m studying the Master of Social Work (Qualifying) course. The program suited all my needs as the courses that I wanted to study were a part of the curriculum. The most important advantage of the program is that it is a qualifying course that leads to accreditation. Also, being a regional University, I got the added advantage. I love to explore regional and rural areas. With this course, I want to develop communities and explore everything that this awesome Kangaroo nation has to offer.

The best thing about the Mt Helen Campus is the greenery surrounding it, the flora and the fauna and the clean air it has. If I was to give the stranger a tour of the Campus, I’d show the precinct behind the library/cafe where one can spot a lot of birds and also see beautiful swans in the pond across the alley which leads to the residence."
