The F Word

18 December 2020

It’s a weird time.

Applications to university got you down?

We’ve heard that a lot this year. In the craziness that has been 2020, maybe somethings didn’t go exactly as planned. Maybe this means you didn’t get into the medicine, dentistry, law, physiotherapy, or other program in Canada.

There’s that “F” word creeping in your mind… failure.

But as our OzTREKK Student Ambassador Emma says, “It doesn’t feel okay at the time, but it will be okay.”

Failing to get into a Canadian program doesn’t mean that you have to give up on your dreams. It may not be your first choice but studying in Australia could be the right choice!

Haven’t you ever thought to yourself, “If only they knew me. If they knew how passionate I am about helping people, about studying to be the best I can be… they’d know.” An Australian university may just look at your application and see something that the Canadian schools missed entirely. After all, that’s been the case for thousands of great Canadian students so far, graduates who are now successfully practicing in Canada.

But don’t take our word for it. Watch Emma’s video to see how failure changed her life for the better!

Emma’s a second-year student in Macquarie University’s Doctor of Medicine program. Follow her on Instagram for more tips and the inside scoop!
