Meet some of the students from Fig Tree Hall.

Jayden Conaghan


I moved from Central Queensland to Sydney to study medicine and I’m currently in the second year of my degree. My family owns a cattle farm and I grew up working on our property and playing any sort of sport I could. I chose to study medicine because we don’t have many doctors where I’m from and I would love to be able to work in rural areas, like my home town.

My favourite part of Fig Tree is getting to know all the new people who arrive here, people that hopefully I’ll stay friends with forever.

What are you studying?


What 3 words describe Fig Tree Hall?

Hilarious. Cultural. Hectic.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?

Tanzania. I’d like to experience rural communities and health services in such a different place.

How do you spend your free time?

I play heaps of rugby, go to the Uni Gym or visit someone else in college.

If you could live in a book, TV show or movie, what would it be?


Any advice to students in their first year at Fig Tree Hall?

Meet everyone you can! Fig Tree is so diverse with so many different cultures and personalities and it will teach you so much, leaving you with lifelong friends from all over the world.
