Meet our scholars

“The Australia Awards Scholarship has enabled me to meet interesting people, inspiring scientists and educators, particularly in the biomedical fields. I hope to apply my expertise to the general population in order to improve the community's health.”

"I have learned to apply the latest tools and techniques of development from the University of Melbourne. My plan is to apply this knowledge in my home country. As a development planner in the Ministry of Planning in Bangladesh, I will be able to apply my learning in policy making and analysis. As an Australia Awards Scholar, my experience has been life-changing."

"The course will definitely help me to provide better advice and services when I come back to work in Vietnam. Besides my study, I take part in numerous social activities held by the Student Union and go travelling in my free time."
