It was my friends who told me that Murdoch was a fantastic university, so I thought I’d better check it out. Knowing that there was a lot of support and they were going to help you all the way through – that support has definitely helped me as a mature age student and I feel a lot more comfortable at university.
I want to be a primary school teacher. That is my dream. My tutors have taught me so much and they’ve enabled me to be the person, as well as the primary school teacher, that I know I can be.Thinking Education? Learn more
I went in thinking my time at Black Swan State Theatre Company was going to be purely observational. But I got paired with great mentors, and they told me to go for it! I got to physically build professional-scale stage sets and help out the whole crew.
With the PR side, I got to develop media kits. It was pretty cool to have one of my articles published in the program for the Next To Normal production.Thinking Arts? Learn more
I took up an opportunity to go to Thailand on a three-week rural prac. We were in Chiang Mai, which is in the north, mainly administering primary healthcare—head-to-toe health checks and a bit of chronic disease management. There’s a lot of it there.
We had no power or running water—we used rainwater from gravity fed tanks. It was a huge change from the facilities I was used to, but I really enjoyed it.Thinking Nursing? Learn more
In the last twelve months, I’ve done pracs with pigs, cattle and horses. The cattle prac was a one-week prac. I worked very closely with one of the most renowned cattle veterinarians in Australia.
We spent five days ‘tagging’ 1,500 cattle. Tagging is a process when you run them through the raceway, which is like a path, and you put them on a cradle, which is like a table, and you flip them over for safe vaccinations.Thinking Veterinary Sciences? Learn more
I’ve had so many standout moments. One was learning how to discover and exploit vulnerabilities in software. We found a way to gain remote access to a computer and make it practically unusable, then came up with a solution so the business could make sure it couldn’t be affected by this kind of vulnerability in the future.
The interesting coursework, challenging assignments and knowledgeable support staff are great too.Thinking Information Technology? Learn more
I started off studying Law, and since then I’ve added a History degree, a minor in Social Psychology and I’m currently completing my Honours. I’ve also spent five months on exchange in Sweden and studied Human Rights in Geneva. I’m in my final year and there’s still so many amazing opportunities coming my way.
Studying at Murdoch has been so much fun. The mock trials we do through the mooting program are great and the academics make such an effort to make learning interesting and engaging. When I look back at my time here at Murdoch, it’s safe to say I wouldn’t change a thing.Thinking Law? Learn more
I have worked in the welfare, health and education sectors for 15 years within Aboriginal-specific roles. I went into university thinking I knew everything. It’s actually opened my eyes to the reality that you get a lot out of a university degree that you just simply can’t get from work experience. It complements what I have and gives me the theory behind what I had already been doing.
When I was in school I was so scared I would fail maths. So when I read the details for one of my business units, I questioned if I could do it. Now I know nothing can stop me if I put my mind to it. I’ve realised what it takes to get that High Distinction.Thinking Business? Learn more
This semester I’m doing an Indigenous Sustainability Unit and I’m learning so much that I’d never even thought about, so that’s exciting. The more I learnt in Indigenous Studies, the more passionate I felt about closing the gap.
My studies definitely led me to wanting a position with AIME. Mentoring Indigenous high school students has been an awesome experience. It’s really nice to see our local Indigenous youth step up and grow as individuals.Thinking Psychology? Learn more
