Student stories

Our students choose Monash because they want to make a difference in their future careers and in society. Find out what they have to say about studying at the Peninsula campus.

Jade Hopgood

Jade is a 4th year Nursing and Midwifery student and is part of the Monash at Peninsula (MAP) program. Being part of the MAP program means that Jade does all of her placements  at Peninsula Health. She values the practical, hands-on approach that her lessons offer. "It's really nice being able to walk out of the University and walk straight into the hospital. It's really reassuring to know that the course that I'm studying has a job at the end of the day."
