What our graduates say

Doing an internship is the best opportunity to put what you learnt into practice while you are still studying. The internship experience integrated into the course 'COMM5008 Enterprise Skills' was of great help to prepare me with valuable real-world skills before stepping out of school and looking for a full-time job. I improved my time management skills a lot and learnt to work as a team with my colleagues.
