UTS is one of the few universities in Australia that offers a biology-oriented forensics course.
Why did you choose to study at UTS?
UTS has good ranking as a university and is impressive considering it is relatively young. Also, UTS is the only university in the Sydney CBD that offer a forensic biology degree. It's campus is also located very close to Sydney Central station making transportation easy, manageable and a big time-saver.
Quite contrary to what many think the lack of a ‘campus’ in the traditional sense is exciting – you come out of a building and you’re in the city!
UTS is also one of very few universities in Australia that offers a biology-oriented forensics course. My mother is a pathologist and has inspired me. There is also a need for personnel in this field in my home country.
UTS Housing was a lifesaver – great prices considering it's close proximity to UTS and the city. The rent includes water, gas and electricity bills!
What are your plans in the future? I plan to complete an honours year before returning to Fiji, where I hope to get employment in the police force and aspires to be a crime scene officer or a forensic lab technician.
