Hear from our students

Nafiz Ul Fahad

Doctor of Philosophy
“I’ve enjoyed participating in social events like the postgraduate mix and mingle events, and the postgraduate writers’ retreat, which were a great way to improve my networking skills.”

Saba Samiei

Master of Computer and Information Sciences
“I really enjoyed the experience of the 3 Minute Thesis competition. It was the first time I had to present my two years of work to a wide audience in three minutes. And winning the audience vote award was a great feeling as it made me believe what I had worked on was something that people were interested in.”

Anh Dinh

Doctor of Philosophy
(Language teaching)
“I’ve enjoyed the academic ecology at AUT with its learning resources, professional supervision, and workshops and events for postgraduate students. What I would say to future students or researchers is, ‘If you want memorable and meaningful experience, look no further – AUT is for you.’”
