Yeoh Shin Yee is rising to the challenge of studying dual awards from Malaysia.
This is Yeoh’s first time to enrol in a foreign university, which is proving beneficial as she works her way through two bachelor degrees at the same time.
'I am studying USQ’s Bachelor of Creative Arts (Film, Television and Radio) and my home university’s Bachelor of Communication (Media Production) (Honours).'
'Studying at USQ brings me great joy and I am glad that I have enrolled in a dual program. USQ’s online system is convenient and I have learned so much about myself and managing my schedule.'
'Online learning really suits me. I enjoy the information, readings and videos. I have found the tutors helpful and responsible, but I also enjoy knowing that my study success is up to me and my efforts.'
The study journey has also come with its challenges.
'For each piece of assessment for each university, I have had to use their preferred referencing styles. I have learned to triple check what each task is asking for to ensure my work meets each university’s expectations. This has encouraged me to be a more details-focused student.'
'Most of all, I’ve learnt to be more independent and disciplined and I’ve learned to manage my emotions while facing challenges.'
