Breanna Underwood

Murdoch University was Breanna Underwood’s first preference for her tertiary studies in forensic science.

She is studying for a Bachelor of Science (Medical, Molecular and Forensic Sciences) and is majoring in Forensic Biology and toxicology and Genetics and Molecular Biology. Her strong interest in forging a career in the forensic sciences has also seen her sign up for Murdoch’s Medical, Molecular and Forensic Sciences Society.

Over her three year course, she intends to attend a number of the Society’s events to gain more insight into the course she is studying and what it can give her.

“Moreover this society will help me to further narrow down which career path I would like to take in the field of forensic science,” she says. “I am looking forward to discovering the special opportunities that Murdoch University offers.”

Breanna completed her secondary education at Frederick Irwin Anglican School in 2021. In years 11 and 12 she took an ATAR pathway studying English, Mathematics Methods, Accounting and Finance, Human Biology, and Chemistry.

“My family and I are extremely grateful that I received the Peel Community Fund scholarship to help me with my tertiary studies and my next stage in life. This generous award will help to alleviate the financial burden to cover my study costs – allowing me to focus more on my learning for the duration of the course and enhance my university experience.”
