STUDENT PROFILE

Megan Somerville

Why did you choose to study at CDU?
I moved from Mildura to Darwin because I wanted a change in lifestyle and it was convenient for me. It’s different but I am looking forward to it.

What did you like about Orientation?
The law presentation was excellent. I had the opportunity to meet and speak with lecturers. I also thought that having exhibitors was really beneficial from an employment prospective.

Final thoughts about Orientation:
Attending Orientation is really beneficial as it allows you to familiarise yourself with campus facilities and get useful information about studying.
