Mr Brendan Holland
Bachelor of Science, Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus

I chose to study at Deakin because the Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus was exactly what I was after and I also liked the flexible study options.

My course has inspired me to extend my boundaries I completed a 13-week placement in industry with pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline, which was a great opportunity to travel outside uni and put my course into practice. Researching the production of opiate alkaloids for pain relief medication provided me with invaluable first-hand experience of life as a scientist.

After graduating I plan to undertake an honours year to further advance myself in the scientific community and apply my skills in the research setting before commencing work within a chemistry or pharmaceuticals-related field.
