Student Profile

Sally Cheung

After travelling from Hong Kong to complete a VU bachelor degree, Sally Cheung has returned for industry-relevant postgraduate study to take her career higher.

"I’ve chosen VU to undertake three courses because of the knowledge I’ve gained from classes and the networks I’ve been able to build with people from many different backgrounds. VU also offers a lot of support to international students who have different needs.

When completing my bachelor degree, I undertook an exchange program to Leeds Metropolitan University in the UK. When I graduated, I gained employment with the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China, where I was responsible for organising sport events and assisting athletes in their retirement planning.

After four years in that role, I decided to return to VU for postgraduate studies. My goal is to advance to management roles and I found that the subjects offered in the Master of Communications were practical and matched the real working environment of my industry. The lecturers are passionate and very open-minded. They are all professional in their field and always share their experience in class."
