"Applied data analytics is perfect for people who are eager to learn and have broad interests. It combines sciences with arts to solve problems. The versatility of the ANU degree is allowing me to discover what really sparks my passion, which is solving societal issues using holistic approaches. I’m combining the study of cultural background, qualitative data collection and analytical statistic programming skills."

"I chose to study the Master of Laws at ANU because I was looking for a career change. I am particularly interested in regulatory and policy solutions to climate change. Public and private sectors working closely to embrace emerging technologies are part of the energy transition and policy and law are part of the implementation.

Studying public and international law at ANU was essential for me to pursue a successful career path.”
