“I chose to study honours to further my career options and to pursue a career in scientific research or further studies in the broad field of science. The program has been extremely fulfilling, allowing me to improve key skills such as experimental planning and scientific technique. The teaching staff are highly approachable and helpful, with lecturers and topic coordinators very keen to provide assistance. I received a lot of helpful feedback, which was instrumental in shaping my work and current experimental plan. Being able to work closely with my supervisors has been a rewarding learning experience. City East campus is easily accessible and has a vibrant environment that allows me to interact with fellow undergraduates and postgraduates. The lecture halls, computer labs, and tutorial rooms provide for a conducive learning environment, and the laboratories are extremely well-equipped.
