Following her pathway to success from diploma to degree, Eriwati Eriwati now has a head-start in her IT future.
Every industry needs IT – I’m glad I chose this course at VU as I have discovered a passion for it.
I began my studies with the Diploma of Information Technology, which gave me one year of credit for my Bachelor degree. I chose to do the Diploma first, because it gave me a lot of confidence, and the lecturer was able to give us more individual attention.
VU gave me so many opportunities – lecturers helped me not only with my studies, but other aspects relating to my career.
As an international student, I never used English in my country, but I got so much help from lecturers and support staff. VU knows how to engage students and helps students to achieve their goals.
I got a scholarship to travel to Nice, France to participate in an entrepreneurship program, and I undertook a mentoring program and an internship which gave me confidence and experience. I then undertook a professional year and volunteer work and now working in IT support for TLA, a global sports talent and marketing group."
