The exposure to industry through guest crits and speakers, industry nights, internship subjects and more, provided me with greater knowledge of the wider industry and the magnitude of the roles and opportunities within. I have gained technical skills like drawing, model making and using digital technologies while developing my communication and interpersonal skills, with presentations being an important part of the design process. I have learnt how to be critical of my own work in order to really get the most out of my time here at university.

The University offers a variety of specialisations for students to explore different interests, which has allowed me to select both Design History and Environmental Systems. The Global Foundations of Design subject is incredibly engaging, covering a wide range of significant architectural typologies and sets a strong basis in terms of understanding and analysing architecture, encouraging me to think deeper and differently about the spaces we occupy. The quality of education and organisation at the University of Melbourne is clear, with many University academics at the forefront of design and research in Australia and globally.
