UWA Business School student Benjamin Faraone spent his summer holidays travelling through China and gaining international work experience-all while earning credit towards his degree.
Benjamin, who is majoring in Finance and Economics, completed a three-week internship at the Charlesworth Group (known as Charlesworth China), a global publishing services company, followed by a four-week internship at Forex Signs Incorporated (FSI), a market research company which identifies investment opportunities in the foreign exchange market.
UWA Economics student Adam Morris will be able to invest more time in his studies with the help of ATCO Australia.
Adam, the 2013 recipient of the ATCO Australia Undergraduate Scholarship, said receiving the $10,000 scholarship would allow him to focus more on his studies.
"Receiving the scholarship will allow me to allocate more hours to my studies that would have otherwise been allocated to part-time work. I will now be able to spend an adequate amount of time studying while being able to support my family," Adam said.
