It was hard work but worth it in the end, lots of anatomy and physiology but once you get past that it becomes really interesting and helps get a good knowledge of what the industry needs and what is required. Thanks

Student review
I enjoyed the overall experience of this course very much and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. I was unsuccessful in my pursuit of a career in this discipline for reasons mostly my own, but, so much of this course content is useful in everyday life and I am better off having done it regardless of going in another direction career-wise. I can't say enough about the lecturers and their ability to engage, I was terrified of studying chemistry having no experience with it in high-school and it ended up being my favuorite subject. The campus itself is also great, accessible by public transport and a nice surrounding vibrant area. Swinburne is 10/10, I'd go back in a heart-beat.

Content involved is very based on real practical experiences, can help you gauge on what sort of career you would like to pursue in when you finish your course. Has other avenues where you can choose a minor to complete in order to venture to if you decide your major isn't for you. For example I did major in nutrition with a minor in sport science.
