“I moved down to Canberra to study Asian Studies together with Engineering at ANU. The Flexible Double Degree program has allowed me to combine two of my passions. I want to be ready to tackle the challenges of the future, but I didn’t want to just be locked down to a single area. I am working towards the renewable energy systems major in engineering, and I have been broadening my perspective and skillset by studying humanities subjects alongside Engineering. The flexible nature of Asian Studies means I can balance my workload across both degrees and experience many different things.
I enjoy chatting to my tutors in Japanese and am getting excited for exchange opportunities in the future. I’m going to have a hard time choosing exactly where to go and when, because there are so many different programs and partner universities in Japan alone! I really love the university lifestyle, but am looking forward to being able to use what I am learning, all around the world.”
