"There is a need to design so people can be an integral part of nature, instead of our current tendency to dictate nature to fit our needs. I believe heading into the Master of Landscape Architecture is a step in this direction." Girvan Tenggono, Master of Landscape Architecture student
"I think I had always been fascinated by the way that humans interact with each other, and the way that communities form and prosper. When I started my undergraduate degree, I was exposed to a lot of urban planning content, and I realised that this great field existed that would allow me to explore both elements of human geography, and physical design and organisation. I chose to pursue the Master of Urban Planning to build on this knowledge, as well as to learn some of the more practical skills that would be required to work as an urban planner." Claudia Lombard, Master of Urban Planning graduate, Tract Consultants
