Nereshnee Shunmugam

Manager of Admissions & Student Services

Nereshnee has worked with Carnegie Mellon University Australia since 2009, when she started as an administration officer. Since then, she's held a number of different roles including as a program officer and as the Manager for Admissions and Alumni Relations.

While her titles may have changed over the years, the core purpose of Nereshnee's roles have not. Students have remained at the heart of everything she does.

As our Manager of Admissions and Student Services, Nereshnee helps process admission applications and acts as a resource to prospective students, parents and the university community, helping keep them informed about all things CMU-A while answering questions about topics such as enrolment and campus life. She also plays a key role in bringing our orientation programs to life each semester.

In her spare time, Nereshnee enjoys watching Bollywood movies and hiking. In 2019, she completed a 21-day trek to the Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal.
