Associate Degree in Applied Science
The program is well structured and enables you to practice what you learn - laboratory classes are coupled with theory classes for almost every course. The teachers do an amazing job to prepare us for real work.
My interests have always been in food science. Food is a necessity of life that ensures food science graduates will always be in demand.
My first instinct was to study at RMIT because of the people I know who’ve studied here. The program design is great, the teachers are brilliant and there’s plenty of practical work to compliment the theory.

The teachers do an amazing job to prepare us for real work. The skills I’ve gained already make me really look forward to my work placement in final year.
My favourite subject is biochemistry because it’s very complex and interesting at the same time. It has applications in any biological field. I find that what I learn fuels my desire to learn more.
I try to take advantage of everything that’s being offered to us because I believe University is meant to prepare us for life, not just a career. By being involved in various programs and clubs, I get to meet people from different backgrounds and I become privy to different perspectives. It helps me evolve and expands my social network too.
For people considering this program, I think it’s a great start to your career. You’ll feel well trained to enter the workforce after two years.
My dream job is to work as a Food Microbiologist.
