I enrolled in a Bachelor of Communication at Massey as I wanted to study something that offered a good balance of in-class lectures and hands-on experiences. As part of the course, there were a lot of presentations. Studying in New Zealand means a lot of real-life experiences. It isn’t just about memorising textbooks; it’s about applying it. My time as a student at Massey University helped me learn how to be flexible and prioritise things.

During my second year at the University of Dundee I began investigating the possibility of studying overseas. I have always been fascinated by politics and I felt I would have an even stronger degree after experiencing higher education in two different countries and universities. The quality of teaching at Massey was a very high standard universally across every course I took. The lecturers were passionate and engaged, and this helped motivate me to achieve great results in my assessments. My time at Massey was an incredible opportunity to see the best of what New Zealand has to offer while meeting some fantastic people along the way.
