Brady Hamilton’s passion for nature led to his involvement in critical research, and becoming an award-winning science graduate.
“After first pursuing degrees in screenwriting and architecture, I realised that I missed being in touch with nature. VU’s Bachelor of Science was perfect because it allowed me to study the environment while also exploring other disciplines, including chemistry and ecology.
I completed an industry placement, working alongside one of the University’s ecology researchers and contributed to germination trials for a critically-endangered grassland shrub. It was an immensely valuable experience through which I was able to put my theoretical knowledge into practice.
With the support of an incredible line-up of experienced, encouraging and generous teachers, who are dedicated to their disciplines and committed to their students, I graduated with the Victoria University Medal for Academic Excellence.
I am now studying a Master of Teaching, with the aim of passing on the subject I love to students, with the same energy that my lecturers passed it on to me.”
