Jenny studied Diploma of Science at UTS Insearch and Bachelor of Science at UTS. She is now the Subject coordinator at UTS Insearch.

My transition from UTS Insearch to UTS was very smooth, because when you have been at Insearch for one year and UTS is just across the road, which shares the same facility for the lab and also library, you don’t feel surprised when you move to university.
