Making the most of your choices

This interactive presentation will give you the chance to map your path for VCE and beyond. You'll reflect on your strengths and how they align with your current and future subjects so you can better understand what your best options are for university and your career.

Achieving a top ATAR

In this session run by Connect Education, you will hear from a current Monash student who will share their study journey and provide you with some hints and tips, as well as learn strategies to help you achieve a top ATAR. You’ll come away feeling ready to tackle your first full year of VCE/IB with confidence.


You’ll have the opportunity to select not one but two faculty workshops. These expert-run workshops will be fun and informative allowing you to experience different study areas.

Criminology for the 21st century

What does a murderer look like? What really happens inside a prison? What works in preventing crime? These are only a small handful of the questions that criminologists encounter. Join us in this session to delve into the world of criminology.

Monash Business School
Step into the share market

You’ll be given virtual cash to buy and sell stocks to better understand how the share market operates.

Do you want to teach the next generation?

This interactive session provides you with an understanding of what it means to be a 'teacher' with the help of current Education students. Challenge yourself to develop a lesson for your peers and provide constructive feedback through the use of technologies that are currently being introduced within classrooms around the world.

Engineering in action

Engineers use science, technology and creativity to solve problems and improve people's lives. People living in areas prone to natural disaster need clever engineering to stay safe. In this workshop, run by our Engineers Without Borders student group, your task is to build and test structures that can withstand an earthquake or cyclone. It's a competition, will your team win?
