Amritha Hariharan was working as a software tester Mumbai when she decided to pursue her Master of Applied Science in Environmental Management and Spatial Sciences at the University of Tasmania.

She loved it so much that Tasmania is now her home away from home.

“I applied to different universities, but I got a generous scholarship at UTAS which was one of the reasons I chose to study here. The other major reason to choose UTAS was I was told that the Geography faculty here were one of the best in the country," she said. http://www.utas.edu.au/news/2017/10/17/433-dream-job-in-futuristic-career/ #science #weareutas #geography
