"Studying with UniSA Online meant that I was able to continue working and living life whilst upskilling at the same time. It’s perfect if you want to gain extra skills or brush up on existing ones without sacrificing other areas of your life. My experience studying a course with UniSA Online has been great. You can study on your own terms, whenever you like. The experience you get is determined by how much you put in. The online tutors are always available and there are plenty of opportunity to ask questions, so you never feel alone.

Recently, I helped kick-start a business called FIL Society, an online lifestyle publication providing articles, videos, services and virtual classes on yoga and wellness. I needed to make sure my skills were up to scratch so I could take lead in the editorial department. Through my News Reporting course with UniSA Online, I’ve gained unique skills that are vital for a career in any media field. I currently oversee 40 writers sharing their businesses and inspiring stories and also write articles on some pretty amazing people."
