Jerome Love
Biomedical science student
“ACU’s atmosphere is both relaxed and studious, and the facilities are exactly what I need to succeed. The fantastic teaching staff have encouraged my progress. I hope to enter medicine after my Bachelor of Biomedical Science and one day provide healthcare for those in low socio-economic circumstances.”
