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.

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.
