    Ben started the Master of Integrated Water Management at the University of Queensland in February 2014

    Olivia is studying Master of Arts in Sustainability at the University of Sydney

    “Hi all, I am about to finish my first of three semesters at the University of Sydney.  Being out here as a postgraduate is a greatly different experience to making this change as an undergraduate.  You have already been through the initial nerves and experiences of university and you feel far more prepared to take on the world, which is why I decided to make this change at the age of 21 rather than 18.  I study a course that I am passionate about; MA in Sustainability; and due...
