What’s life like at UWA?

This is Lara, a third-year Juris Doctor student. Lara travelled to Geraldton to undertake her internship with Regional Alliance West (RAW), a not-for-profit organisation offering access to information, advice and support to people experiencing difficulty in rural WA. Lara absolutely recommends a McCusker Centre internship to all students and says it’s undoubtedly been her best university experience.

This is Sohail, a Genetics and Data Science student. He’s passionate about human rights and justice, which is why he got involved with Students for Refugees (S4R) at UWA. Being S4R’s Vice President has been an amazing experience and taught him invaluable lessons about leadership and community involvement. He says he cannot be luckier to work with a group of like-minded individuals who are passionate about the same things as him.

This is Dhruv, a third-year Pharmacology student. Earlier this year he became the Marketing Director for MAN UP, an organisation that spreads awareness of toxic masculinity while empowering young men. As MAN UP’s Marketing Director, Dhruv works on content creation for their social media platforms. He is also passionate about health and clinical sciences and, after he finishes his undergrad, he hopes to further his biomedicine studies in a more patient-oriented setting through a pathway like the Doctor of Medicine.

This is Rob. He reckons he’s made too many friends to count at UWA. Because of the incredible social side of UWA, he’s found it easy to meet people in classes, clubs and everywhere else. He’s been Co-President of the AusIMM UWA Student Chapter, which prioritises bringing industry and students together, and hosts events, forums and excursions aimed at promoting the mining specialisation at UWA and introducing students to real-world connections before their careers have even begun.
