Ashish Jetly - India - Graduate Diploma in Communication
“After completing a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications and earning media industry experience by working as a public relation officer in India, I decided to extend my currentdegree to the next level by completing the Graduate Diploma in Communications. This course encouraged me to think creatively and communicate effectively and I felt privileged to get an opportunity to do my Internship in Wintec’s Marketing Department. It is a valuable qualification for the students seeking to make a mark in the creative and imaginative world of media arts. I have enjoyed the on-campus events such as Spark, the diverse culturalstudy environment and supportive student services.”
