Student testimonial

Jessica Brien, Bachelor of Health Sciences

‘I was very good at food technology at school, so I knew I wanted to study something in nutrition. However, I didn’t want to be tied down to only nutrition, so studying a Bachelor of Health Sciences really appealed to me as I got to major in another area, my choice being Family, Society and Health. It’s a good course if you know you want to have a career in health, but aren’t sure what specific area you want to go into. ‘I chose Deakin because of its convenient location for me being only 15 minutes away from home, the fact that Deakin is well known to be the best place in Victoria for studying nutrition and also for its modern and artistic looking Melbourne Burwood Campus.
