Sumaia El Sayed chose RMIT because of its industry connections and facilities. RMIT's diverse subject choice has given her a clearer idea of what she wants to become, and that’s a medical researcher.
Bachelor of Biomedical Science
When I graduate my dream job is to work in immunology or undertake research into molecular biology of proteins. I love what I do because I'm passionate about science and discovery.
I have always had a passion for biology, the human body and disease, so studying biomedical science was the right choice for me.
I chose RMIT because of its industry connections and facilities. They offer a diverse range of subjects which has given me a clearer idea of what I’d like to do once I graduate, and that’s to become a medical researcher.
Microbiology has been my favourite subject so far. I find it fascinating learning about organisms and their effect on the human body and the environment.
The degree teaches me how to apply theory to real world situations. We’re first taught a lab skill, and then my teachers make sure I understand the theory behind it.
I believe it’s really important to get involved in University life. This has helped me build my communication skills, make friends and have a rewarding and fun time at Uni.
I volunteer for RMIT events like Open Day and In2Science. I love In2Science because I go to a school for 10 weeks to help young students develop an interest in science and maths. I am also an executive of the Association of Biomedical Science Students.
