Undergraduate Course:

Bachelor of Business (Event Management)




Thanh Bao Chau Tran – UQFY February 2009


Despite studying at an International school for 5 years prior to starting Foundation Year, IES helped me to gain a general knowledge of business subjects that I did not have and which were imperative to my UQ aim of a Bachelor of Business.

I saw the Foundation Year as my second chance to change my study patterns and take my education seriously; I felt that Brisbane was a cosy city with limited distractions and friendly people where I could feel motivated and safe.

I chose IES because it was the best path into UQ and the best course to provide me with a bright future. Studying at IES also gave me the opportunity to adapt to Australian cultures and to become familiar with the education systems at UQ.

My plans for the future include finishing my Bachelor of Business, majoring in Events Management and Finance and then studying a Masters of Finance at New York University in America.
