Student testimonials

Lara Sanderson

"With the community that’s created online you don’t feel isolated at all, even though you’re in your room or you’re in your own little bubble. You have this community to draw on which is amazing. Because the Master of Information Studies has been an online programme for so long it just flows, there were no hiccups. The small classes were more approachable online, it was like we were doing face-to-face anyway. You’re encouraged to become a student member of ARANZ or LIANZA so that you’re part of, and welcomed in to, the professional community."

“Even though I’ve been studying the Master of Professional Business Analysis online, I’m best friends with everyone in my class. We have a group chat, we talk to each other nonstop, and we have study groups with each other. It’s really social, even with the lecturers—on a Friday afternoon our lecturer would always stick around for 10 to 15 minutes just to have some banter with us which was really awesome. Even though we were doing everything through Zoom and Teams we were super connected which is something that I hadn’t experienced in previous online learning. I was so anxious when I heard that the course was going to be delivered online, but I absolutely love it.”
