ALEX
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (PHYSICAL SCIENCES)

TODAY WAITING TABLES
TOMORROW UNRAVELLING THE UNIVERSE

I have always been fascinated by the night sky. The desire to look up is a calling experienced by nearly every person since the earliest days of human history. However few people dare to try and understand how we actually fit into this cosmic structure. It’s a daunting task and, in a way, that’s why I have chosen to earn my Bachelor of Science degree at USQ. 

After walking through the Toowoomba campus, my initial trepidation was replaced with a belief that I could actually do it. The support the lecturers offer is unparalleled and the small class sizes ensure personal attention. I can also stay in my hometown and work in my family’s restaurant while studying. 

I now know that my lifelong goal is within reach and I will earn my degree, complete with eligibility to apply for accreditation from the Australian Institute of Physics. The best part - USQ have a Study Abroad program and I’m able to undertake a semester at Universität Zürich, Switzerland. 

I’ve realised that sitting, wishing and waiting for something to happen won’t achieve anything. The more opportunities I pursue, the more become available. Thanks to USQ I have the confidence to aim even higher and work towards my Doctorate in astrophysics.

For me, astrophysics is about looking upward and university is about looking forward. Together, I’m defining my own place in the world.
