    Turning a hobby into a degree: Mitchell's story

    Like so many others, Mitchell Beagley didn’t know what he wanted to do when he finished Year 12. Luckily, he discovered a traineeship in a field he’s passionate about and has since completed a Cert II and III in Aquaculture, and is currently studying a Bachelor of Environmental Science with CDU – all while juggling full-time work and parenting duties.
