Shan Sherlock

Shan Sherlock, offered and accepted, Bachelor of Business

Why did you choose to study @ CDU?
The high level of teaching and support I was exposed to through my previous courses at CDU were a major factor.

What were some of the features that attracted you to apply @ CDU?
Accessibility to a university that offered modern facilities and the latest technology, including on-line learning that is perfect for external students working full-time.

What do you like about living in Darwin?
Darwin is a modern city with a unique cosmopolitan lifestyle.

Anything else you would like to add...
I think CDU is advancing and the Bachelor of Business provides fantastic opportunities to upgrade your skills. The flexible delivery of course makes it easy for students to achieve what they want.
