Q&A with Courtney

Why did you choose this area of study?

I have always been interested in health, practising a healthy lifestyle and promoting this way of life to those around me. The double degree combines both of these interests (health and marketing) which will hopefully lead to an exciting career path.

Why Deakin?

I had only heard great things about Deakin. The course and the location were perfect for my needs and I've never looked back!

What is the best opportunity you have had at Deakin?

Completing various internships have helped shape my future. Internships and a practicum unit gave me that workplace knowledge you wouldn't be able to get anywhere else.

Deakin insider tip?

Live on campus – it will open up a whole new chapter to your life.

How has your experience at Deakin affected your life?

Living on campus gave me a sense of independence, and I was fortunate enough to meet some of my closest friends at Deakin, and these will last well beyond my time at university.

Any recommendations for someone considering Deakin?

Definitely give it a go!

Completing various internships helped shape my future.
