I studied a Bachelor of Applied Sciences at RMIT University then decided to broaden my knowledge and take my academic qualifications a step further with the Master in Biotechnology.
I chose RMIT because it offers a well-rounded degree with options for further study and opportunities to receive industry experience. I also really appreciate that I get to remain in contact with my fellow, likeminded science students who have been with me over the years – through work and play.
My studies have helped me to improve my ability to work and learn independently and I have a better sense of what I need to do to adapt to meet the challenges in class and in the lab.
Biotechnology is an exciting field where technologies are continuously developed and there’s a myriad of diverse workplace positions to choose from.
RMIT has provided several study tours with leading industry organisations, such as CSIRO and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, that were able to provide an insight into how the industry operates and what is required. I’ve also completed an integrated work placement as a research assistant in a biotech lab which gave me valuable firsthand experience.
When I graduate, I plan to travel around Europe and enjoy myself a little before I return to full-time employment.
Ideally, I’d like a position where I can be involved in creating new developments in medicine, cancer research or even biofuels.
