Oscar Matope - Malawi
“I chose Australia because it is a multicultural English speaking country with an emphasis on high quality education. I chose UQ because it has a good international reputation for academic excellence plus it offered a shorter masters degree program.
“The (Master of Property Studies) program was rich in both practical and theoretical aspects. It really enhanced my learning experience such that I am now confident to carry out my responsibilities professionally and diligently. Almost all courses under my program had a practical component and this enabled me to understand property issues in depth. Furthermore, the just ending global crisis provided interesting opportunities and challenges for the professionals and the program ably examined both. Also, the facilities and the quality of resources and lecturers were excellent - the reference books were readily available and challenged my ego to read; the lecturers handling the program were superb.”
