Before CSU, what did you do?
I completed my Bachelor degree in Vietnam in year 2004. I arrived in Australia in 2005 and studied English for 3 months at EmbassyCES before joining the Master of Information Technology degree at the CSU Study Centre.
How did you first hear about CSU?
I first heard about CSU through my agent.
Why did you decide to study at CSU? What helped you make your decision?
Because, the Study Centre is located in Sydney and due to the opportunity to live in one of the world's most well-known and beautiful cities. Besides, CSU offers a reasonable tuition fee which I can afford and their subjects are interesting.
What is your favourite subject and why?
I like all subjects related to information security because it is the area of my interest. Besides, I like “Ethics in IT” too. This subject has helped me realise that a good IT professional not only has deep knowledge of IT, but is also an ethical person.
What have you enjoyed most about studying at CSU?
The Lecturers at CSU have taught me a completely new learning method.
For example, researching for assignment preparation, guide to writing a good assignment and writing references to avoid plagiarism, which is considered very unethical in Australia.
In addition, I have got new friends from different countries, which has given me a chance to learn exciting things of various cultures. Now I can speak some Chinese, Portuguese, and French words.
Can you write about an interesting/humorous experience you’ve had at CSU?
I often joke with my friends that the best way to get acquainted with a foreign girl is to say “Hello” with her by her native language. That’s why I always ask my friends to teach me some common words of their languages. CSU is a multicultural environment that gives a chance to do that.
What are you plans after you complete your studies?
I will seek a scholarship to do a PhD, otherwise, I plan to find a job in an IT company.
What are your career ambitions?
I would like to become one of the leading Information Security experts.
What are your hobbies?
I love astronomy, reading books, watching movies, playing games, listening to music, and singing.
What do you do at the weekends?
Going to the church, reading books, watching movies, playing games, listening to music, and chatting with my friend on the Internet.
I work part time in a Bakery (15 hours a week).
What advice would you give to someone who is thinking of coming to CSU?
CSU is a very good choice for you. Lecturers are great and friendly. They will share experiences that they have experienced in their life and career with you. You will find these experiences very useful for your future jobs and life.
