Rachel Cavanagh

High school attended: Tullawong State High School

Degree: Bachelor of Nursing Science

Target graduation date: 2021

My journey: Prior to finishing high school, I attended QUT for 1 semester and found that I wanted a university that valued their students more, which is where I found myself applying to USC. I came straight from high school to Uni to study Primary Education, however after one year I decided it wasn't for me. I took a big jump and changed to Nursing which I absolutely love! 

Career aspirations: Once I finish, I'll be a registered nurse! However, I plan to return to Uni and study a Bachelor of Midwifery or Occupational Therapy.

Why did you become an Ambassador? I became an ambassador because I have a passion for meeting people, providing advice and answering any questions people might have about university. Having recently graduated high school I am familiar with how daunting starting university is and having the opportunity to help and guide people through the transition to university.

What do you like about USC? I like how relaxed the tutors and lecturers are but also how much they care and are willing to help you with anything. All of the university campuses open and have such a social vibe.
