I’ve always loved animals and the environment, and I hope to contribute to the conservation of organisms and ecosystems by learning about ecology and conservation and gaining practical research skills. I was attracted by the broad range of subjects offered throughout the Faculty of Science, as well as the ability to choose a more specific focus and pathway later in the degree.
I really appreciate the flexibility of study within my course at the University of Melbourne, and the university’s great reputation both locally and internationally helps to be more confident about the quality of education and post-graduation employment prospects. I’ve also really enjoyed the friendly and welcoming atmosphere and the wide variety of extra-curricular activities offered, such as student-run clubs which cater for a huge range of interests!
I've really enjoyed the variety and scope that I’ve experienced with my subjects, as well as practical components such as field trips and camps to locations outside of Melbourne. I’ve also been able to follow my passion and carry out a number of research-focused subjects in my third year, meaning that I’ve been able to enjoy my time studying while still gaining useful skills for after graduation.
