My name is Valerie and I feel very lucky to be part of the small amount of people who got the chance to participate in the World Rep program.  Studying at the Griffith University in the Gold Coast is a great way to meet new people and learn about different cultures all over the world. It gives me as a journalist the opportunity to increase my research and academic skills together with focusing on a topic that I find very interesting: The representation of refugees in the Australian news media. I am also lucky enough to combine these research with making my own first documentary.

Hi! My name is Lennard Swolfs, a journalism student from the Netherlands. The World Rep program offers me a great opportunity to improve my academic skills, to meet new people all over the world and to learn more about the Australian culture. Besides that, the University of Tasmania focuses on news in a digital age, which helps me to understand my profession better. One day I hope to be a reporter in the Middle East. The University of Tasmania gives me the opportunity to focus my research on this field and thus helps me to prepare myself for the future.
