"The Masters lab work provided me with a robust scientific skillset, and gave me the critical thinking and evidenced based thinking which I will carry with me for the rest of my life."
"I was really drawn to the coursework-research balance of the course, the ability to build research, analysis and academic skills and to strengthen my own skills in presentation and public speaking."
"I wanted the opportunity to focus on neuroscience research and have some hands-on experience in a lab – and the Masters definitely offered that."
"The University of Melbourne is renowned for its academic, teaching and research excellence – and its support for students with disabilities was another reason I chose to study here."
