Dr Grant Pink, UNE alumnus and Canberra-based environmental regulation professional, talks about his experience of education through UNE as a mid-career professional.
" My name is Grant Pink, I'm the Managing Director of RECAP Consultants Pty Ltd. I'm married, with a teenage son and a recent PhD graduate from UNE. In terms of deciding to study and commencing my studies, it was a very busy time for me. I was a senior manager in Australian Government, full time, so I needed that flexibility of working online and studying when it suited me.

In fact, in many ways, the studies augmented my professional activities of time. The Uni Study experience was fantastic in terms of flexibility it offered me.."
