The two Newcastle University students stabbed to death in Borneo were set to embark on hugely promising medical careers, the university has said.
Professor Jane Calvert, the university medical school's dean of undergraduate studies, said Aidan Brunger had aspirations to be an academic medic while Neil Dalton wanted to head into clinic practice.
Prof Calvert said the 22-year-olds' study abroad was a standard practice in their development after their fourth years and said the university would never send its students to high-risk areas.
