Christelle’s first two university degrees didn’t lead her to a career she loved. After working in real estate and taking some time out to travel, she transitioned into construction and loved it. A year in to her new role, it was time to get the degree that would help her climb the ladder. Christelle enrolled in a Bachelor of Applied Science (Construction Management) with Curtin University, through OUA.
“I aspire to continue my work in construction, doing my own small developments in the future,” says Christelle. “I’m looking at future avenues like company secretary, risk management and contract management. I purchased my first home last year, so I work a second part time retail job to help with my mortgage. That means I have to time manage my studies really carefully as I work 7 days a week. It’s all about work-life balance and factoring all my tasks to fit.”
What Christelle appreciates most is the flexibility and options that OUA offers, which she wouldn’t get by going direct to Curtin University.
