VU’s supportive learning environment was the perfect setting for Abigail Bravo’s career change.
"I came to Australia for a career change. VU has given me exactly that. I don’t see the world like I used to. Melbourne is gorgeous. It is a city that celebrates art and embraces different cultures, and that makes it so beautiful.
I have never experienced a more comprehensive academic support system than VU’s. The lecturers are quick to recognise your potential, nurture it and hand you the tools to flourish. VU creates a multicultural environment with equal opportunity.
I was given opportunities based on academic performance, without preconceived bias or judgement. I always felt very supported in all my endeavours by the staff who were supportive of my goals and went out of their way to help me achieve them.
Participating in a practical internship was a great achievement. I gained practical knowledge from my studies that I could apply right now in the industry. There’s nothing like the feeling of being chosen and having the opportunity to apply the skill set you just acquired in real life."
