Hi. I’m Areej. I’m an international student from Saudi Arabia and I am currently undertaking a Masters of Information Technology. I will finish my Masters at the end of this semester and wish to continue with my PHD at QUT. My educational journey in Australia began in 2009 when I enrolled to study General English. I already had a basic command of the English language, as I had studied English at university in Saudi Arabia. From there I progressed to study English for academic purposes and the IELTS preparation program. I initially commenced a Masters in Business (Marketing), but after a semester decided it wasn’t for me, as I have always had a greater propensity for maths/science subjects. Prior to coming to Australia, I was the Manager of the Nutrition and Dietary Department at a large hospital in Saudi Arabia, but I had decided I wanted a change in career. I am interested in pursuing a career in SAP, ERP. My hobbies and passions are many, but particularly, women’s rights in the Middle East.
