(Science / Law)

I’ve always been interested in how things worked when younger. Once introduced to the world of chemistry back in Year 10 Science, I discovered that I was quite hooked on the concept of moles and reaction equations. By Year 12, I knew that chemistry was definitely my calling, and so now I find myself about to enter my third year of university studying Science majoring in Chemistry and Law. With this degree, I hope to be able to combine my knowledge in both fields, doing either research, forensics or patenting. UNSW in my opinion, is a great place to study chemistry.  With great academic and teaching staff and top-notch facilities, it provides a very student-based learning atmosphere, encouraging a hands-on approach to course work, ensuring that not only theory, but practical skills are acquired, applicable to both research and industry.
