The highlight of my studies so far has been the in-depth and hands-on laboratory work we do. It's informative and relevant, and surprisingly fun!
I’ve always been interested in biology and helping people, and lab medicine combines both of these.
RMIT’s Laboratory Medicine program is focused on practical skills not just theory. We learn how to apply our knowledge in a practical way.

I’ve improved my technical lab skills, and also increased my ability to work on solo and small group projects, which is a valuable skill. My favourite course has been Microbiology, because it’s full of varied and interesting content.
I’m also a member of the Science Fiction and Gaming Association, which gives me a nice social community to relax with and take some stress off studying.
This degree will qualify me to work in both Australia and in the UK, which gives me a unique opportunity to work overseas in the future.
The field of medical science is full of exciting challenges and rewarding outcomes. I love what I do because it’s full of variety and interesting things, and it’s helping to save lives.
