The migration law program has the best qualified lecturers in the field and the university’s support for online and face-to-face learning was invaluable. Attending face-to-face classes at VU Sydney on weekends suited me, as this meant I could continue to work full time during the week. I also found the online discussion boards very helpful and was able to impart practical experience to my fellow students.
