8 Kym Volp Bachelor of Applied Science (Microbiology and Biochemistry) (Honours) Without my science degree, I would not have been able to start my first company, a skin-care company, which is still trading. Biotechnology and Biomedical Science (Honours) qualifications give you the skills to critically review products that are out there on the market, evaluate them for appropriate use and come up with better alternatives. That s important because employers aren t just looking for somebody who knows how to play with tubes at a bench, they re looking for someone who can add value to their business and think critically. My QUT degree has given me the edge over other job applicants throughout my career and over competitors in the daily operations of my business. At my heart, I have always been a scientist and my current role of running a national scientific recruitment firm allows me to hang on to that and be successful in the business world as well.

10 Heather Allen Graduate Diploma in Applied Science (Medical Ultrasound) When I started talking about my interest in ultrasound to my colleagues here at the hospital, they recommended that I choose QUT for my studies. The program allows me to work full-time and the time I spend scanning in the ultrasound department actually counts towards my prac at the university, which is awesome. I m from Canada originally and part of the reason I chose QUT is because QUT does have such a great reputation both locally and overseas.
