Laurence's dream of networking, researching the industry and building up his skills were all made possible on his year exchange to TU Berlin.
Bachelor of Design (Multimedia Systems)
Make the most out of it. You don't get this chance very often.
Laurence loved studying in Berlin, which he says is renowned for its tech start up, great working culture and friendliness to English speakers. Laurence found the learning style at TU Berlin different to RMIT, with smaller lectures and more interaction between lecturers and students.
Heading on to exchange, he planned on using his time overseas to network, research the possibilities of living and working in Germany and see what the industry was like. His networking paid off as he was offered a paid student internship at the university that allowed him to work with the Mozilla Firefox phone. As well as studying Laurence took the opportunity to backpack around Europe for 5 months.
