Shuway decided to study overseas in order to challenge herself to be more independent and have more international exposure.
RMIT University, Melbourne
RMIT is truly an institution that has a good mix of both academic and student life.
She chose Melbourne for its multicultural hub and most liveable city status, and RMIT for its global reputation. Her decision did not disappoint, as she explains, “RMIT has a good learning environment and space for students. Staff members are friendly and helpful. I enjoyed every semester as friends were easily made … There are so many activities students can be involved in and that is what university life is all about.”
What Shuway liked best about Logistics and Supply Chain Management was the number of group assignments. She found this to be important as students “learn to work with others … by working in groups, you will be open-minded for new ideas and learn to be a leader or team player”. She also liked the fact that the courses were “in-depth” and in “detail”. “This program focuses on the practical side with real life cases and not only on the theoretical aspect that make students more analytical and business-minded,” she says.
She was very much involved in the Student-Staff Consultative Committee for her program, as well as being an active volunteer as a Foundation Studies Mentor, Open Day Student Volunteer, and RMIT University Student Union (RUSU) English Workshop Volunteer.
Now Shuway is a graduate, looking forward to using her skills in her new career.
