- About Deakin
‘The camps and field trips have always been so much fun and I feel like I have learnt more by doing things, rather than just learning in a classroom environment. These trips have given me hands-on skills that cannot be replicated in a classroom, including radio-tracking skills, GPS and GIS experience, mammal trapping, macroinvertebrate collection and vegetation analysis.
Currently I have a seasonal position as a Project Fire Fighter for Parks Victoria and I also have a cadetship with the Department of Sustainability and Environment so, already, I am using the skills and knowledge that I’m learning at Deakin.
Many of my lecturers and tutors are still contributing to research. Their practical knowledge makes them very inspiring and interesting people to learn from, and I know that what I’m learning is completely relevant to my future career.’
