My view for the past 3 months

It’s the summer holidays! Three months of total relaxation! It’s time to put down my legal textbooks and psychology articles and instead “slip on a shirt, smack on sunscreen and slap on a hat” (that’s all that you’re meant to do in summer right?)

QUT business is all about making the most of the resources you have at uni, while you’re at uni, to make sure you are competitive when you graduate. Here’s how you make the most of a business degree.

The Final Push

quoteThis is it. The final push. Those last few weeks of the school year when you just want to stop work and be on holidays.
