I decided to return to UNSW after working for three years as an IT consultant because of a strong desire to make a career change to a quantitative field. I chose the School of Mathematics at UNSW because of its reputation for teaching and research excellence.
At UNSW, I found the teaching and the facilties to be first-class. Courses taught were intellectually challenging and demanding with the lecturers stimulating the class room experience by offering a depth and breadth of knowledge in their subject area. These were matched by an extensive and modern computing environment, allowing students and their teachers to put theory into practice.
