Student profile

Sherween Chew

Course of study:
Bachelor of Nanotechnology / Bachelor of Science


I found that as an International student from Taiwan, La Trobe was a wonderful environment for me to pursue my interests in nanotechnology and science.

This double degree program was perfect for me as I feel there are many interesting career options now that I’ve graduated. My course offered very good placement opportunities in companies such as Rio Tinto and Starpharma which helped me understand how my knowledge applies to the industry.

I felt I had a lot of support during my study as the course content was always interesting and the teaching staff within the Department of Physics were very nice.

When you are choosing a course, my advice is to choose something that you really want to do so you will enjoy it even more in the long term.
