Find out how Nick Johnson got the most out of starting mid-year!

After VCE, Nick missed out on ATAR for entry and initially went to another university, where he worked to improve his marks, then switched mid-year into the Bachelor of Commerce at The University of Melbourne. Personal goal one ticked. From here, Nick experienced a world of opportunity in his degree, building his knowledge, meeting like-minded-peers, and expanding his networks and horizons to places like India for the International Business Experience study tour.
