What Our Students Say

Constantino Dias Mendes

“I really liked that I could study some theatre units in my UNSW degree. A few people had recommended UNSW to me, so it was an easy choice. And the right choice! I thought it was a good balance with theory and the practical study of film and television. I got two internships through UNSW and I think that they are the best things to get you a job in this industry. You get real life experience and if you’re willing to learn and work hard, people will see that and write a reference for you. When I got my job at Channel 7, I had two referees from within the industry that could actually say I’d worked with them.”
