Annie’s 4 tips on how to succeed with studies

Hello, my name is Annie and I recently graduated from the Master of Professional Accounting at CQUni’s Melbourne campus.

9am to 7pm, or if I’m lucky I can leave at 6pm. That’s how my life used to be working as a Finance Manager in my home country of the Philippines for almost 5 years.

I loved the drive, adrenaline, unending learning and teaching all at the same time and I especially loved that I got to work with people I liked and have become friends with over the years.

Stephanie Jones1

CQUniversity Laws student Stephanie Jones has spent the past four years working on the frontline of human trafficking prevention, with global anti-slavery organisation A21 in Bangkok, Thailand.

Once there, you are sold again.

Over the course of five years, you are forced to spend days and nights on the streets just outside the casino, begging for money as part of a child trafficking ring.
