I learned many valuable things during my three years at RMIT Vietnam. I really appreciated my lecturers, who spent a lot of their time supporting and encouraging me.
My main message, as an RMIT alumna, is to appreciate the study process and the theory as well as the practical, because when you get into industry you can use your thinking skills and quickly adapt to change.”
