Chun Xia Liang's Story
PhD in land-atmosphere modelling
"When I finished my honours degree, I said ‘enough, no more study’. But I soon found out you don’t reach your goal of a “good job" from your first degree. Although I had a skill that gave me work, there were limitations preventing me from making progress. I chose the University of Sydney because it has a reputation in agricultural research - and I love the campus! Postgraduate research has given me more insight into myself. I have learned more about what I want to do, and what I can (and can’t) do. This will help me to choose a career that suits me and keep me motivated. It has also helped build my confidence language skills that will enable me to participate more robustly in the community. I look forward to my future opportunities, and know I will make the most of them.”
Master of Sustainability
"My studies have changed my outlook, in terms of how society interacts with the environment and how society views itself. It’s given me a completely different perspective. I was accepted into another degree (pharmacy), but I was more interested in the environment and the bigger picture and sustainability is the thing of the future – it’s the growing thing."
