My journey at the University of Melbourne started with a Bachelor of Biomedical Science. I was near completion of a PhD in Immunology when I decided to change course and study psychology instead. I’ve always had a general interest in human health and I find psychology fascinating as it affects all aspects of our lives. I chose the Graduate Diploma because I could complete all the undergraduate units in one year full time. The Graduate Diploma was a very intense course but it was incredibly interesting. For the first time in my life I was studying because I wanted to, rather than because I had to. The lecturers were all very engaging and I always walked out understanding some aspect of my life so much better.
