“NOTRE Dame helped me grow and develop as a person, which has helped me have an impact on my clients,” Notre Dame Graduate Diploma of Clinical Exercise Physiology student Emily-Jane Trimbell says.

The accredited exercise physiologist from Halls Head chose to study at the University of Notre Dame’s Fremantle campus for its small class sizes and the opportunity to make life-long friends.

“Notre Dame not only gave me the necessary theoretical and technical knowledge to be a good clinician, but challenged me personally to build my character,” she said.

“What makes Notre Dame unique is the opportunities it gives students to grow and develop as people, so they enhance their practical skills for the workforce.”

Ms Trimbell said a trip to Cambodia was a highlight of her postgraduate studies.

“Building a better life for amputees, children with disabilities and diabetes patients has made me a better clinician,” she said.

The university will hold its annual open day on Sunday, August 21 when visitors can take part in a range of hands-on activities at the various academic schools, hear from leading academics about courses and learn more about the university’s unique admissions process.
