"I have always had a talent for mathematics at school and university. For that reason I wanted to do a postgraduate mathematics degree, purely for fun. I was working full-time as a surveyor at the time when I started the course, and studying part-time through CSU really suited me, as I could study at home after work.
"I lived at Umina Beach on the Central Coast of New South Wales during my two-year course. Studying by distance education suited me as I could study at my own pace, and in my own place. It was easy to communicate with the lecturers and other students via the online forum. I was fortunate enough to receive two Dean's List Awards and graduated with Distinction."
