"Studying Foundation Year was the fastest way for me to pursue a Bachelor of Engineering degree at Monash, one of the best and biggest engineering schools in Australia. I also love the fact that the classes are pretty small so you will have a better one-on-one interaction with the lecturers. The lecturers who guided me along the way have also provided the skills that I needed to work on my PhD. And I've grown to become more responsible, more mature and certainly more ready for the future."
