“The University’s Melbourne Model of study allowed me to enter the Master of Architecture program even though my undergraduate degree was in business. The most enjoyable part of my studies has been working in groups with my classmates. We help each other, make connections and learn so much from our daily sharing. Also, the facilities here to support study and create our work like the Fablab, the Design Hall (Baldwin Spencer Building study space for postgraduates), the architecture library and the print room are amazing. It really helps us to be comfortable and more effective in our studies. ”
