Keiran Batavia (Bachelor of Pharmacy) (Hons)
Curtin is the perfect place to study pharmacy. I’ve had extensive training in compounding labs and sterile compounding, learning how to make and manufacture medications, IV bag infusions, ampoules and eye drops. We undertake clinical placements at community pharmacies and hospitals, which fully prepares us for the workplace when we graduate.

Meg Abercromby – Bachelor of Science (Health Promotion) and Bachelor of Science (Public Health) (Honours)
My course as a whole was amazing. I learned about real world issues and innovative ways to tackle them, including different global public health practices. While studying, I also worked with Curtin AHEAD. In this role, I worked with school-aged kids to inspire and help them work out their career paths.
