"Being a mature aged student is a constant but exciting challenge..." before coming to Macquarie I was a full-time mum. I had thought about becoming a science teacher for several years and once my children were old enough, I decided to come and start my degree here at Macquarie. I had been to a couple of Open Days here and found Macquarie to be very welcoming.
Macquarie offers a wide range of subjects that you can tailor to your personal goals. Doing a Bachelor of Science with a Diploma of Education will give me the qualifications I need to be a teacher, as well as knowledge and experience in the field I love, science.
I find the semesters at Macquarie fit in well with school holidays, and the flexible learning options allow me to study part time so I still have time for my family. I can vary the amount of units I take each semester and choose classes that fit in with my schedule. Online learning tools like iLecture
, and the late operating hours of the library have also really helped me to fit everything in.
