I chose to study health sciences because I knew that it would yield the foundation to my health-related career. Unsure of what industry of health to pursue, I knew that choosing a Bachelor of Science (Health) would be the stepping stone to a range of master’s degrees in health or research.
A typical day at university for me would begin with attending all my timetabled lectures, tutorials and labs. I also help myself to the diverse resources of the university to complete my assessments and help prepare for exams.
What surprised me most was how broad my degree was. This meant that I was learning everything from mental health to physical health. Depending on your major, every unit is designed so that you are able to pursue further studies in the future.
I like how everyone at USYD is very goal oriented. It feels good knowing that my peers are always on tract with their studies and all want to achieve the best possible outcomes from their assessments!
In uni you get out what you put in, so if you’re putting in effort to study then you will do well. But also don’t stress about your failures, they give you a chance to learn and show you what areas you need to focus on.
