Hear what our students have to say about their experience in Honours:
Bachelor of Biomedicine; Honours (2017)
What have you learned in honours?
"Honours has extended my knowledge on the causal relationships involved in disease. In honours, I'm learning about the intersection between social interaction and illness. It's taken the integrative thinking skills I learned in Biomedicine and expanded it to considering how social factors impact on human health and, in turn, how health can benefit from certain social factors. I believe this knowledge is important when working within the health sector. Honours has also taught me other skills such as office etiquette, how to work in a team with supervisors, how to manage your own project and it's developed my writing and people skills."
What has been the highlight of honours?
"My Honours cohort are an incredible bunch of people. We all support each other, not just academically, but socially too. I know I'm developing some more lasting friendships. There has also been an onslaught of support from the department itself. There's a wonderful balance of being guided through yet being taught to work independently. Honours is proving to be an amazing experience."
Bachelor of Biomedicine; Honours; PhD in Immunology (2016)
What have been the highlights of your time at University (Melbourne)?
"The excitement of working on cutting edge research projects and publishing my work in world-class scientific journals has been extremely rewarding. I have also enjoyed the social aspects of a life as a PhD student and have made many of my close friends along the way."
