    If I were to list down every feature of the Western Sydney University which appealed to me, it would be a perpetually extending, inexhaustible list. The focus of education is student centred with emphasis on industry preparedness. Therefore, as most undergraduates (like myself) seek to gain industry relevant skills and experiences, Western trains us with professional relevance in mind.
