Priscilla moved to Melbourne from her hometown in Bali straight after high school to pursue her passion for at Victoria University. Thanks to her degree, she now works at a leading Australian cosmetic and aesthetic clinic.
"I chose the Bachelor of Health Science (Dermal Therapies) because I have always been passionate about skin and I wanted to understand the scientific philosophy behind beauty, rather than just the glamorous side of make-up. I found that Victoria University provided this.
"Through my course at VU I learned how to be strong-minded, independent, solve problems, and work within a team, as well as be a confident team leader. These skills were gained through ‘once-in a lifetime’ experiences such as the practical placement component of the course, which gave me a deeper understanding of the concepts learned in class.
VU has provided a great range of support during my time studies. They were particularly supportive in helping me settle in and adjust to living by myself in a foreign country, and taught me how to handle any situation that life may throw at me.
"It's not merely the academic knowledge that VU delivers that has created my success; moreover it is the support and development of life skills that has prepared me for my career path and life after university. It is a result of having these skills that I am currently working at one of the leading cosmetic and aesthetic clinics in Australia."
