Bachelor of Radiation Sciences
Tell us a bit about yourself
I’m originally from Afghanistan where I belonged to a minority group known as Hazara and came to Australia 6 years ago. I finished secondary school at Lyndale Secondary College and am currently studying Radiation Sciences at Monash.
Why did you choose to study the Bachelor of Radiation Sciences at Monash University?
I did a lot of research and found the Monash course to be the most extensive. It will provide students the best opportunity to become highly experienced and knowledgeable radiation therapist.
What have you enjoyed most about studying the Bachelor of Radiation Sciences so far? I enjoyed learning about the physiology of the human body studying physics of the fluids, and radiations enabled me to understand the fundamental principles of radiation therapy and the production and use of radiopharmaceutical products.
I’ve also gained a lot more knowledge about the function of the health system in Australia. Through my psychology units, I’ve gained crucial knowledge about emotional health and cognition, which means I’ll be able to pay attention to my future patients’ psychological health while I’m treating them. Lectures and classes here are programmed well and it didn’t take a long time for me to adjust to a university life.
What would your advice be for someone looking at studying the Bachelor of Radiation Sciences at Monash?
