    After deciding to study abroad, I instantly went to an education counselor who suggested several universities to me and among them, I was really impressed by Queensland University of Technology as it is one of the world's largest digital interactive learning and display spaces. Award-winning scholars and international intellectual leaders are here to teach us. To study from them, I decided to join the institution by paying $100 while submitting the form online.

    Through the program, I gained experience in real-world hands-on activities in an innovative learning environment. Also, I'm learning to plan, design, construct, operate and maintain a variety of structures and facilities.

    It was my dream to continue my studies from here as my father was a graduate of this university and currently my brother is also studying here and I also wanted to continue the ritual. This further motivated me to get admitted here, adding a practical perspective to theoretical education. My GPA of 8 helped me to get admitted here by filling up a common application.

    Course Curriculum :

    QUT’s Bachelor of Laws is a higher-level qualification than a bachelor’s degree, as it has honors-level content integrated throughout the course. The honors units are integrated from years 2 to 4 and help our graduates remain ahead of the pack in a competitive legal industry. I had to complete the academic law units required for admission to legal practice and will develop legal skills such as interviewing, negotiation, drafting, and advocacy.
