Our Students

Christina Varveris

I completed my VCE in 2012 but did not receive an offer into any of the courses that I had applied for. I was looking for a course to help me get into nursing and discovered Melbourne Polytechnic’s Certificate III in Science. It seemed like a great way to continue my studies so that I could gain a further understanding of science and maths after finishing school, so at the start of 2013 I enrolled in the course.

Studying the Certificate III in Science was great for me. Throughout the course I improved my knowledge and understanding in science, maths and communication skills. The teachers were all helpful and very approachable and because of the great learning environment within the course I was also able to build up my confidence. 

Since completing the Certificate III in Science I have received an early offer to study a Diploma of Nursing at RMIT University in 2014. The hard work that I have done throughout the year has all been worth it, I feel great that I have done the Certificate III in Science because it has given me a pathway into University. This course has strengthened my passion and desire to further my career in nursing. I feel excited for the future and confident that I am ready to take on study at University.
