'Deakin's wide range of courses and the flexibility of units attracted me to study at Deakin. I had completed my first year of study through a Deakin pathway at the Institute Royal Institute of Colombo in Sri Lanka.
From my experience at Deakin, students get an opportunity to tailor their courses to suit their personal interests. I had the opportunity to pick World Religions as one of my elective units, which was an amazing experience as I had the chance to learn more about different cultures. I also believe that Deakin offers a wide range of student support services and support is always available to students both online and on-campus. Deakin lecturers are also more dedicated to the units and easily accessible to students.
I completed the IT Internship unit during my studies and obtain a cyber security internship at Deakin eSolutions. This was a great experience as I had the chance to learn more about IT Security in an organisation and gain experience working in fast-paced environment.'
