Nathan Lansakara
Accounting and finance graduate

“My time at ACU has given me so many positive memories. What resonates with me the most is the opportunities I’ve had to complete components of my degree overseas. I felt privileged to volunteer in Vietnam teaching English to young seminarians.

I also studied overseas through the Paris Outbound Program. Nothing compares to studying in a different country surrounded by new experiences.”
