Hello, my name is Shane D’Silva and I am in my final term of the Master of Information Technology at CQUniversity Melbourne campus.
The past two years has truly been a fast-paced, mind-blowing experience. By blood, I hail from India. However, I have lived in Kuwait for almost 18 years.
I spent two years in Dubai as well as another couple of years in Qatar. I am truly grateful for my father who continues to work so hard to have provided our family with the opportunity to experience life in those countries.
When I was younger, I had always wanted to study abroad in America, Canada, UK or Australia. However, I was presented an opportunity to pursue my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science & Engineering at one of India’s most prestigious private university, Manipal Academy of Higher Education.
I completed my studies and then set my sights on being able to start my life abroad. I went through days after days, agents after agents conducting tedious research into universities all over the world to pursue my master’s degree.

There are many options when it comes to getting help with your university expenses. Scholarships, in particular, are an excellent way to make university a possibility and help you achieve your academic dreams.
It is a common misconception that scholarships are purely academic based. Often, people tend to think if they haven’t scored the perfect marks, there is no bother in applying. However, a lot of scholarships are merit-based and there’s a much broader scope than people might think. There are many scholarships available ranging from assisting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and aiding women studying non-traditional fields to supporting regional students.
