Internships and career development

Internships and career development

Looking for career development opportunities within your science program? There are three units that can give you a competitive advantage when looking for jobs. The units can count as science electives within the BSc, BSc Advanced- Research (Honours) and any double degree with the BSc.

Career development support and resources

Student future

Throughout the year there is a range of career programs and events targeted towards science students, including our Science Industry Week held every August where students have the opportunity to hear from employers, industry guests and graduates during a panel networking expo. These programs are advertised via Career Gateway and in the Science Student Lounge.

In addition, through Career Connect you have access to numerous online resources and to career consultants, who can provide advice and assistance on resume development, job search, maximising opportunities during your science degree, ensuring your graduate job-ready, graduate employment programs, workshops and industry events. If you are in your final year you also have access to
Career Success Coaching which can help you set yourself up for success.

Undergraduate students interested in research can also undertake interdisciplinary research activities with the support of the Centre for Undergraduate Research Initiatives and Excellence (CURIE). Benefit from networks that reach across the university and beyond.
