I’ve always been intrigued by the complexities of the human body. It’s fascinating to learn how our bodies work and cope with both internal and external stressors.

When I was younger I always dreamed of becoming a doctor but I couldn’t afford to go to Medical School so I studied Primary HealthCare instead. A few years later, I was undertaking a Bachelor’s Degree in Health and Medical Science and something about it didn’t feel right.

THINK Health Education, Diploma of Nursing

“During the first stage of my Diploma of Nursing my college shut down… It was very hard for me to cope with the situation. I’m an international student and my visa was at risk. I was considering leaving Australia when I received an email from THINK Health Education. I was so relieved. The transfer was quick and went smoothly - it didn’t even involve any paperwork! I got back to study, the campus was bigger and offered much better simulated laboratories. I couldn’t be happier and I would definitely recommend THINK to anyone who is facing the same situation.”
