    Blake Hughes

    Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science

    I first started Medical Laboratory Science with a keen interest in the broad range of subjects offered. This interest only increased when I stepped into the lab. The instruments and facilities available at JCU match those of a real medical laboratory, this helped me go into my placements with confidence and experience.

    Jeremy Naughton

    Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science

    The lecturers, tutors and student mentors were nothing short of amazing; I honestly could not have graduated without their support. Not only did they deliver the material, they went above and beyond; emailing me to see how I was travelling with the degree and taking the time to sit with me one on one if required.
