"IT changes all the time, and I like adapting to new things. I've learnt how to complete challenges with other people and I really enjoy working as a team. The learning at Monash College is very practical and interactive. We are always doing activities in our lectures and classes. Because we are learning the same subjects as university students, I know I'll be well-prepared to start at Monash University."
