'You get a lot of Universities where they don’t know your name, they don’t know who you are. All of our teachers knew who we were, they knew our names, and they knew us inside out. And I think that is an incredibly unique thing for a university to be able to offer.'

Heidi Dugan graduated from UniSQ with a Bachelor of Arts (Creative) with a determination to gain experience and improve her career in China. 

Heidi has had extensive experience in the TV, media and publishing  including:

  • becoming one of the first foreign TV hosts on Chinese television, an emcee, TV presenter and judge
  • launching her very popular cooking show You are the Chef
  • being awarded Most Popular TV Host on International Channel Shanghai for 8 years running
  • the publication of a cookbook titled Follow Me and Learn to Cook Like a 5 Star Chef. 

Her abundance of skills and knowledge from both Australia and China has also allowed Heidi to assist companies to enter the China market.
