Vacation research opportunities

Vacation research scholarships run over the University summer and winter breaks.

The program is intended to encourage and attract promising students interested in pursuing a career in research or academia.

Research scholarships aim to provide undergraduate and postgraduate students with:

  • experience in an area of research
  • an insight into future opportunities within research
  • encouragement to pursue a career in research or academia.

If you're interested in a research career or furthering your studies through an honours program, this is a great opportunity to get ahead during the University breaks.

If successful, you will take part in research-related activities for a specific scientific project for a 13 week period during the summer break or 4 week period during the winter break, under the supervision of a senior researcher.
