Opportunities for internships and volunteer placements

Students studying in the School of Biological Sciences have many opportunities to get directly involved in research: from volunteering and scholarship opportunities that will place you in the groups of some of Australia’s leading research programs in the biological sciences, to industry training opportunities, such as internships involving the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

These opportunities (both paid and unpaid) provide key professional development skills and the experience sought after by employers in the biological sciences. Engaging in these types of opportunities can accelerate your career readiness, expand your horizons when it comes to the diversity of careers amenable to graduates with majors in the biological sciences, and equip you with a competitive edge against your peers as you enter the job market.
