Developing critical thinking Umbreen

Was critical thinking a new skill for you to apply at RMIT?

Thinking critically that is again an issue for most international students.

I always thought that what the educationalists, the academics are saying, that is it. I don't have the capacity to actually criticise that, or to add something to it, I should just believe it as such, and for me it was really different, and when I started writing, I realised that there was so much that I had to say. And that what I had to say was also important.

And it really helped me in doing my other assignments as well, because it developed that kind of critical monologue within myself so it was really helpful, I think.
