I chose food and agribusiness because I have always been interested in science, and my family came from a business background thus, I wanted to incorporate both of my interest and my family interest. When I found out about this degree with science and business subjects, it sounded interesting and I knew instantly that it's a perfect degree for me.
I can’t really choose but so far, my favourite unit is BIOL1007: Molecules to Ecosystem because this unit is a combination between biology and chemistry.
Due to COVID-19, I have to do all my university work online. I am currently back in Indonesia and there’s a three hour time difference between Sydney and Jakarta. I wake up really early to attend practicals and tutorials. Afterwards, I finish with zoom sessions, I take a lunch break then continue doing other university work such lectures and assignments. I would usually stop studying at 8pm and then I rest afterwards.
The professors are very friendly and helpful. I am really surprised that they are more like a mentor. In high school I was always told that university professors are very strict and unapproachable.
I want to work in a company and get some experience before creating one myself. I want to build a company that focuses on well-being of its members and the environment.
Do it! If you love science just take it! It is fun and very interesting. I'm really happy that I did. There are more things in science than just reading textbooks and lab practicals.
