“My favourite thing about studying at Flinders is that engineering gets its own building [at Tonsley]. You run into the same people, you experience the same classes and you create a bond with the people around you. I think that’s really important when you are all struggling together in university. I like living and studying in Adelaide because you get the best of so many different worlds. You can go down to the beach, you can go on a hike and you also get a great education living here. Also, the living cost isn’t high so it makes it very much applicable to anyone.”
