"Studying teaching was literally a life changing decision. QUT believed in me and they backed me with so many opportunities, starting with free learning seminars when I enrolled, to building my practical experience and classroom confidence with teaching opportunities during my course. The support I received really boosted my confidence and helped me thrive in my studies and I secured my first teaching job before I graduated."
