“I can look back on my time at UC and say it was a truly unique and practical experience which taught me how to express my creativity through communication. The real-world industry insight and experience that my teachers had was invaluable. Since graduating, I’ve moved to Melbourne, started working in a global advertising agency and haven’t looked back!”
