Today’s lunchtime Career session, presented by La Trobe University Bendigo, saw more than 50 BSSC students eager to hear La Trobe students and staff speak about a broad range of opportunities in Allied Health and Nursing.

Will Brohm is a second-year student studying a Bachelor of Applied Science and Master of Physiotherapy. He spoke passionately about the importance of studying what you love, but also gave practical advice about uni life, including timetabling, contact hours, and the opportunities for overseas study.

“Work your bum off in Year 12,” he urged students, “and you’ll reap the rewards. But if you don’t get the marks you hoped for, there are many avenues to still get to your dream course.”

After Will’s presentation the students split into smaller groups to hear about the areas of Allied Health they are most interested in, including nursing, dentistry, speech pathology, physiotherapy and exercise science.

BSSC thanks Caroline McKenzie (Nursing/Midwiferey), Melissa Deacon-Crouch (Nursing), Margaret Tran (Dentistry), David Goode (Dentistry), Kellie Stagg (Speech Pathology), and Mike Kingsley (Exercise Science) for sharing their expertise with students. There was so much valuable information shared.
