Andrea studied UTS Foundation Studies at UTS Insearch and is now studying a Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Mechanical)

At UTS Insearch I learned how to write reports and do research, which prepared me for my studies at UTS. Also, UTS Insearch is a lot smaller, more personalised in a way, so it's better for learning.
