“I chose the Biomedical Science programme as it offered a fantastic stepping stone for advancement in the field of biological and medical sciences. Biomed provided a vast range of learning options along with great lecturers. It also helped me find my passion in neuro-oncology. Currently, I am working as a PhD candidate, hoping to aid research in cancer metastasis and immunity in the brain.

“During my undergraduate degree, I was awarded the University of Auckland Jubilee Scholarship, which assisted me with casual everyday costs such as commuting long distances from home.

“The University of Auckland presents a great learning environment with lots of opportunities to grow, particularly with a good balance of study, outside activities and communication with lecturers and tutors.”
