Master of Fine Art graduate, NZ
My time at RMIT was great for me both personally and professionally. RMIT provided the chance for me to have an international practice. I always felt challenged throughout my time in the MFA program. The result of my time at RMIT is that I am placed in good stead to keep achieving and gaining new opportunities within the art world.
