    Christine Yujian Tang - China, Master of Creative Industries

    Testimonial from Christine Yujian Tang - China, Master of Creative Industries, student at Western Sydney University

    Not only did I get a feeling of what the industry, the media, the news and journalism is like, I got a taste of what that operating system is like - how to present in front of an audience and how to film it.

    Isam Al-Handola - Iraq, Master of Public Health

    Testimonial from Isam Al-Handola - Iraq, Master of Public Health, student at Western Sydney University

    I feel that I have made the best choice - especially because of the technology-infused learning. I love the way the course is taught using a multimedia approach, and that it has access to a whole online library to read material for tutorials and research assignments.
