Some words from our students:

“One of the greatest joys of UniSA degrees has to be their flexibility; by the time I had finished, I had taken so many classes across such a broad vista that I actually had to work out what I had, in fact, completed. It worked out to be a BA in Writing & Communication, sub-majoring in Film & Video with a minor in Performing Arts.”

(Adele Kirby)

“Some people go into university knowing exactly what they want to do, but I didn’t. It was halfway through the degree when I decided I really enjoyed editing and would like to make that my career. I love it! As part of my studies, I am now undertaking a real-life editing project . . . a 30-page document . . . It’s so practical.”

(Gill Ratcliff)
