Originally from Wellington in New Zealand, Georgia moved to Melbourne to study the Bachelor of Biomedicine. She studied an International Baccalaureate at high school, preparing her for tertiary study, and fell in love with the University of Melbourne at Open Day in 2017.
I wanted to do something a little different and make my own way - so I chose to move to Australia rather than study at home in New Zealand.
“I am in awe of how I am constantly surrounded by passionate and engaged young people at the University. There is so much to learn from the people around me,” Georgia says of her university experience.
Now residing at University College (UC) where she holds a leadership role as VP of the UC Student Club, Georgia reflects that the college was one the best things she has ever been part of: “Going from having no one to a 300 person family who all welcomed me was incredibly special,” she says.
Having just completed her second year of Biomedicine, Georgia is looking ahead and has a keen interest in genetics, immunology, anatomy and reproductive physiology. With plans for a career in the medical industry be it professionally helping others or through research, Georgia says, “There is so much to be done to gain a clearer picture of how humans function. I would love to contribute to this.”
