Neuroscience graduate profiles
"Once I read about the neuroscience degree, there was really no going back... It was love!"
Fascinated by biochemistry, molecular biology, and psychology, Irene was delighted to discover the Neuroscience programme during her second year of study.
Neuroscience enabled Deborah to leave the option open for a future medical career, while also gaining a broad understanding of basic biological sciences.
“I really liked studying Neuroscience at Otago – it taught me how to look at research critically, to think about information being presented, and to apply a lens of curiosity over it."
Not sure what area of science she wanted to pursue, Frances Greer initially enrolled in the University of Otago’s Health Sciences First Year programme so she could sample a wide range of subjects.
"After reviewing the options, I settled on a BSc in Neuroscience, as the idea of studying athletes' brains really interested me."
While studying first-year psychology and philosophy at Otago, Matthew realised he was becoming increasingly absorbed in the material and was hungry for more.
