Our first day in Sydney Australia was kicked off with a meeting with Maquarie’s dean of journalism and communication department, Nicole Anderson. She was accompanied by Amanda who is an advisor for post graduate studies. They discussed the cost of studying abroad, how they teach journalism students and the research that comes out of their institution. Nichole’s specialty was the same as mine.
