Choose your level of study
I chose to study the Bachelor of Computer Science (Advanced) at the University of Adelaide because from a very young age, I’ve always been passionate about computer science. The idea of being able to make a change and innovate using technology made me select this discipline. I chose the University of Adelaide because of its high rank in the field of computer science (currently 43rd in the world), its reputable name and its world-class research. This inspired confidence in me as I believe the university provides the ideal environment for me to mould myself through gaining invaluable knowledge from its many well-qualified and proficient teaching staff
