Indigenous student testimonials

Kyle Ryan
Bachelor of Biomedical Science

I had the fantastic opportunity to participate as a student in the InspireU Health Camp 2016. Coming on this camp, I was a very shy and introverted boy who only had an vague idea of what I wanted to be. A week on this camp and interacting with the excellent mentors really opened my eyes up to the possibilities of medicine. Without this camp, I would not have gained the confidence to pursue my now new dream of becoming a doctor. This camp gave me the knowledge and skills required to pursue such a career in terms of preparing me for university life.. and that is something I am truly grateful for.

Alliyah Sirriss
Bachelor of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences

In 2015 I participated in the InspireU Health Science Camp. It really cemented the idea of going to university after school and made me realise this is something I definitely want to do. Not only did it give me a deeper insight into what to expect from university, but it also allowed me to make friends and connections prior to coming to UQ which really boosted my confidence.
