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.”
