Graduate story

"I love chemistry because not only is it really cool and exciting, it is the pursuit of understanding things at the deepest level. Once you have that understanding you can take it to manipulate, design and create at an atomic scale. I chose the BSc(Adv) degree at the University of Adelaide because I knew that I wanted to get into research and this degree gave me the flexibility to choose my subjects, a cohort of like-minded, motivated and enthusiastic young scientists and research experience from as early as second year."
