Meet Ronan

Ronan wanted to study alongside like-minded people. That’s one of the reasons he chose to study Biomedicine in the School of Biomedical Sciences at Melbourne.

Through studying the Bachelor of Biomedicine I have received a wonderful introduction to health sciences…I’ve become more organised, focused and confident.

As an avid sport enthusiast, Ronan played footy and squash with access to the University’s green spaces, fitness classes and sports clubs. He was also a member of the Mandarin Language Club and travelled to China for three months to improve his Mandarin skills.

Throughout his undergraduate degree, Ronan has been involved with the Biomedicine Students' Society (BSS): “It was a fantastic introduction to the Biomedicine community at the University - and a great way to make friends,” he says.

Mentoring younger students through his involvement in the BSS, Ronan passed on the advice that he had learned – how to study effectively, maintain work-life balance, GAMSAT preparation and medical interview practice. For Ronan this was an amazing experience. “There’s no feeling quite like helping others,” he reflects.
