This semester I’m taking a unit, AYN426 International Capital Markets Law and Regulation, that is taught at the Gardens Point campus on Saturdays and Sundays. It’s an ‘intensive style’ unit, so rather than class each week, we attend for four weekends over the semester. Although this is my final semester at QUT, I’ve never before been to the campus on the weekends. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. No crowds – no hassle. In the past I worked weekends and studied during the week, however now that I’m no longer working weekends and now having to study on Saturdays and Sundays, I think I’ll be studying on campus more often.
This semester will be my fourth semester assisting students as a Postgraduate Student Learning Advisor (SLA). I’m part of a team of current undergraduate and postgraduate students who help Business students succeed in their studies. I applied to become a SLA after meeting a current SLA at an event held on campus. She encouraged me to apply at the end of September when applications opened.
