Suggested Courses

  • 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.”

  • Richard's Story

    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."
