"Through my Masters I was exposed to a whole new world of science commercialisation that I knew nothing about. I fell in love with it and found something I was truly passionate about."
"I wanted the opportunity to focus on neuroscience research and have some hands-on experience in a lab – and the Masters definitely offered that."
"I am passionate about the field of addiction as it is often not appropriately considered nor recognised as a mental health disorder."
"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."
"The Masters degree provided a supportive, caring community, highly experienced professors and a welcoming working lab environment."
"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."
Liam Leyden, Master of Biomedical Science
"The Master of Biomedical Science has been a great route into research... Building skills in areas like statistics and imaging analysis has been invaluable. I also found the science communication subjects particularly useful especially for getting the most out of conferences; you can do the most brilliant research, but you also have to be able to explain it."
Stephanie Gomez - N.A. Twiss Scholarship recipient and Masters student
"I have always been fascinated by the field of microbiology, that something so minute can be so complex."
