SECOND-YEAR chiropractic student Jamie Woodman is one of a number of undergraduates featured in a new mid-year marketing campaign by Murdoch University.
Developed in-house, the campaign focuses on real students sharing their real experiences of Murdoch.
Mr Woodman, who lives in Kardinya, said he chose chiropractic after experiencing first hand the benefits of the practice.
“I knew that I wanted to do a something relating to human biology and was leaning towards sport science because I play a lot of sport myself,” he said.
“Then I hurt my neck and physiotherapy wasn’t working for me so my Mum suggested I go see a chiropractor.
“I actually went to the chiropractic clinic at Murdoch for a first consult and then went in for a second appointment and it went back to feeling 100 per cent; it was awesome.
“I would love to able to help someone like that so decided to study it.”
Murdoch University offers the only fully accredited chiropractic course in WA, and is one of just a handful of tertiary education facilities that teaches the discipline Australia wide.
Mr Woodman hopes to one day offer his skills to a professional sports team.
“I play ice hockey and one of the students that graduated last year was offered a fellowship with an NHL team in America so the opportunities are definitely out there if you put in the effort,” he said.
Murdoch University director of marketing, communication and advancement Paula Barrow said Murdoch was a challenger brand in a crowded and competitive marketplace.
“The student experience, range of disciplines, levels of study, pathways to entry, differing study modes, and domestic and international study options are what make Murdoch unmistakably different,” she said.
This campaign highlights the unique nature of our university through the personalisation of our student stories, experiences and plans for the future.”
