Studying a double degree in chemical engineering and management keeps her busy, but Ilona Frejda still finds time to give back to her fellow students by working as a PASS Facilitator.

I was attracted to RMIT as it is a global university with an excellent reputation and high chance of employability after graduation.
I have been passionate about chemistry since I was in high school and I always knew that chemical engineering was a field where I could do more than simply earn money. Improvements in chemical engineering designs contribute to society and help to make a difference.
I was attracted to RMIT as it is a global university with an excellent reputation and high chance of employability after graduation. I was also attracted to the variety of facilities and resources available for students.
One of the places I visit the most at uni is the Studying and Learning Centre. It offers academic assistance with subjects like chemistry, mathematics and English. I'm sure I wouldn’t have achieved as much without such great teachers who are able to ‘jump’ in to any problem I have. They help to develop my thinking, for which I'm deeply grateful.
I’m currently working at RMIT as a Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) Facilitator for one of the first year courses, Chemistry of Materials 2. PASS is a great way to learn from other students as an addition to lectures and tutorials. I love being able to transfer knowledge to my peers and help them comprehend difficult concepts.
I am still undecided about my future career path. RMIT has shown me that many job opportunities exist after graduation, so at this point I’m still keep my options opened to see where the future takes me!
