"The University has provided me with a wonderful education in both music and teaching. I stayed at the university for my Masters because the staff and students on campus are wonderful, caring and so willing to help. The facilities are incredible and the campus has become my second home."

"I wanted to be more employable in my home state. I wanted to challenge myself by learning about a profession that was completely different to what I was in previously. A drastic career change CAN completely turn your life around and point you in a positive direction."
