If you’re a student pursuing an Engineering, Health, Business, Administration, Education or Medicine discipline, you should consider applying for a Defence University Sponsorship. Sponsorships are available to undergraduate and graduate students.
Bella Todd is a medical student and someone who wants to make a difference in the world.
“I want to give back to our community – being a doctor you get to do that, being a doctor in Defence, I get the double whammy.
“To be deployed to go into situations that are out of my comfort zone and experience new things while learning on the job will be really exciting,” She said.
After completing her Defence University Sponsorship and subsequent officer training, Bella will have the opportunity to work with some the most advanced equipment and technologies in the world.
For the University of Queensland student it’s these essential, but career-defining experiences that make years of hard study worthwhile.
“When you tell people you want to be a doctor, they say ‘Ah, you are going to earn so much money’, but if you are in it just for that you are not going to have a rewarding career,” Bella said.
“I think a lot of people think there are really scary fitness requirements to get into the Army – I don’t think that you need to be an elite athlete or a ‘hard core’ Army guy to get in because that is definitely not the case.”
The ADF offers you a career where you will become a part of something bigger than yourself; it will train you to reach your true potential, providing both security and a rewarding challenge.
“I want to be there to help the people who are trying to protect our country,” Bella said.
