Celebrating our graduates – Alicia Currie

After a break between high school and university, Alicia Currie’s career path became clear after taking on a Diploma of Business.

RMIT was the best choice for me as it was flexible enough to fit around other responsibilities such as work, social commitments, and personal life.

Alicia will graduate with a Diploma of Business and a clearer sense of direction after admitting she was initially hesitant to return to study.

With most of her friends nearing the end of their time at university, she said that she was unsure of the prospect of taking on a Diploma, however she instantly knew she made the right decision.

“When I decided to go back to study at the age of 21, I was really unsure because my friends were all finishing and I was only just starting,” she said.

“However, I decided to take the jump and I knew it was the best choice for me.”

Alicia said that getting to meet and study with a wide range of personalities was important to her.

“The people I studied with were a highlight,” she said.

“So many different personalities and friendships were made possible, even if COVID made that difficult.

Life after uni

Alicia looks forward to returning to RMIT next year to further her studies.

“I plan to go into the Bachelor of Business next year to broaden my skills in the industry.”

Advice for future students

Alicia recommends a Diploma to anyone who is looking to gain industry knowledge and progress their studies.

“It's a great pathway for further study but also covers so much basic business knowledge,” she said.

“It’s useful in many workplace environments and will give you a qualification as well”
