2023-2034 Student Awards Impact

“It feels amazing to know that my hard work is being recognized. It gives me a huge sense of pride and accomplishment. Student awards help me a lot financially and serve as a constant reminder to keep pushing myself and striving for the best. Overall, it's been a really rewarding experience that's made a real difference in my journey.”

Dario Au
Bachelor of Applied Information Systems Technology - Information Systems 

“With a family and children, full-time schooling is inevitably a financial burden. I have a part-time job, but juggling parenting, school, and a career is not an efficient use of my energy and time. There were many times when I asked myself if I was making the right decision and if I would be able to sustain it. Receiving student awards under these circumstances was not only a joy and a financial relief, but also a great mental stimulus to keep going towards my goals.”
