‘Many lecturers went out of their way to help me succeed. They were more than happy to discuss scientific research above and beyond the prescribed course work.
‘The hands-on practical classes – including dissections, research projects, fieldwork and off campus excursions – cemented the theory taught in lectures. Group assignments taught me how to collaborate, manage people and delegate tasks – skills I’m now applying in my current role.’
