IT-Testimonial

Sophie Kaelin
IT student

Macquarie offers flexibility and a perfect balance between academic and social life

“I have always been interested in IT and law. When I saw that a double degree was available to study law in conjunction with IT I knew I had found the perfect degree.

I had always wanted to go to Macquarie as it seemed appropriate for my lifestyle and I had heard such great things about the campus life. It seemed to have the perfect balance between the social and academic sides of university life.

My computer and IT subjects are so enjoyable and fun. You are given the opportunity to code and create your own programs and given guidance on how you can improve.”
