"After completing my undergraduate degree I started working as a research assistant at The International Centre for Allied Health Evidence; a research centre situated at UniSA. I really enjoyed working in research and undertaking Honours seemed the next step to expand on and develop the skills needed to work in research and further my career in the area.
The Honours program taught students how to conduct a research project. For me, it was a practical way to learn the different research paradigms. It has been of great benefit in developing the skills needed in my position and has given me the opportunity to experience managing and undertaking a research project from start to finish.
The highlight of the Honours program would be my first paper, a systematic review from the work done in my research project, being accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal."
