Victoria University is not just a university for me, but also a place to discover new experiences. The University offers great student support and the teaching staffs are always there to help us. Supportive lecturers combined with well-designed courses prepare us so we will be ready for the business environment when we graduate.
With a strong international student community where you can share your experience, I feel very proud to be part of the University and I am sure that other students felt the same as I do. It has been a pleasant time and I am really grateful that I have the chance to finish by BBA degree at Victoria University.
