A chance internet find led Rachel to begin her dream of being a pilot and seeing the world. Rachel knew she wanted to study aviation in Australia. She searched for the best program and by chance discovered USQ.
'I approached my agent about aviation at USQ, who then gathered information directly from the university. It is a well-structured, three-year course where first-year students are able to use the Boeing 737 flight simulator.'
USQ’s aviation program brings together the best of the aviation industry alongside the theory and knowledge to produce graduates ready for the variety of roles the aviation industry offers.
'There have been guest lecturers, airport days, airforce excursions and opportunities for women in aviation. Being a USQ international student has also enabled me to become an Ambassador with Brisbane International, so I am meeting and connecting with a variety of people to build my networks come graduation.'
Rachel has one year remaining and then has plans to pursue employment at an Australian airport or an airline.
