Hi there fellow students,
My name is Paul and I’ve been studying at ACCS for the last 5 years. I’d love to share some of my thoughts and experiences with those just starting this journey as well as those further along the path.
I recall sitting down in my first class at the old Miranda campus having no idea what I was in for. As I looked around the room at the 8 or so other students who were at various points of the Bachelor of Social Science journey I felt completely out of my depth and feared I had bitten off way more than I could chew. It was only as my journey unfolded over the following months and years that I realised that same fear permeated in varying degrees through every one of my fellow student’s hearts and minds.
As I reflect on this time now, I note the development of relational depth and community amongst my fellow students came as each of us risked vulnerability in sharing the positive learning experiences as well as the fears and challenges that comes with the study journey.
