Natalia Novozhilova

“Studying the Master of Politics and Public Policy has altered how I work as a public policy practitioner. It has given me greater confidence in how I work, particularly in relation to working through complex policy problems, and a better understanding of how my colleagues in other policy roles operate. It has also been a fantastic networking opportunity. I've made great connections through my classmates who work across a wide range of sectors including government, the not-for-profit sector, media, education and politics.

The ability to study by distance has allowed me to participate in this degree while undertaking a hectic work schedule working interstate and full-time. I felt very connected despite being off campus, and the weekend schools provided excellent opportunities to meet the staff and my fellow students. The staff were excellent, and despite being an external student, I always found they went out of their way to answer questions, provide feedback and give support when I've needed it.”
