BACHELOR OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

MASTER OF ENGINEERING SCIENCE


FROM A DIPLOMA IN MALAYSIA
TO ENGINEERING IN AUSTRALIA

I’d completed a Diploma in Telecommunications Engineering back home in Malaysia, but my lifelong dream was to come to Australia to study and forge a career.

One of my teachers was doing his master’s through USQ, and suggested that I should consider it as an option. 

I’d considered overseas study before, but my family had reservations about me being so far from home.

But after looking into it, and researching a number of universities, I realised that USQ offered the best study environment, and was far more affordable than other universities in larger cities.

USQ staff are really friendly and helpful, which made my transition to a completely new country and university so much easier. The time they invest in supporting students with language and cultural barriers really impressed me. They help you learn more than the course content: you learn how to really understand it and apply it.

Adjusting wasn’t all smooth sailing, and learning the local culture took some time, but I’ve now graduated with a Bachelor of Information Technology and a Master of Engineering Science.

In addition to my qualifications, I’m also proud to say that I’ve gained a lot of self-confidence. In Malaysia, I was well and truly in my comfort zone and felt I could only go so far in my career, but in Australia and at USQ I have the freedom to discover the most confident and successful version of myself.
