Alody Sy completed a Master of Laboratory Medicine at RMIT while working part time as a laboratory assistant.
Master of Laboratory Medicine
I'm currently doing a 16-week placement in the cytogenetic laboratory at Monash Medical Centre. My role involves working on a special project and I'm also undertaking laboratory diagnosis procedures.
I believe learning should never stop – especially in the field of science because it's always evolving.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology at the University of Santo Tomas in the Philippines, I felt there was still more to learn.
Postgraduate studies are allowing me to gain a career advantage by expanding my education and improving my ability to think critically.
RMIT is recognised everywhere - it has a reputation for innovation in technology and academic staff are leaders in their field.
As an international student, RMIT has a number of student organisations that help you settle in Melbourne – they really know how to take good care of students!
Online learning modules have been helpful as they enable me to study lectures at my own pace. The library makes it easy to search for study material – even offering haematology and histopathology microscope and slides to view.
The practical elements of the program have enabled me to be work-ready, and my work placement has also helped me to make connections with people working in the field.
