Student experience

Greer Clarke

"Studying health economics was both challenging and rewarding. My highly experienced, professional teachers encouraged me to think and analyse independently which actively developed my knowledge and skills. I also participated in the 'Student Work Experience Program' where I completed a placement with the Queensland Government Department of Health. This improved my understanding of health economics as well as my confidence as an employee."
