The Academic Skills team is available to help develop and enhance your skills for tertiary success. Attend workshops and individual tutorials to help accelerate your learning, and achieve academic excellence in your degree.
Industry and Careers Events
We run a number of events throughout the year that connect students with industry and employers, hosted by both the Faculty of Science and the wider University.
Students are provided with the opportunity to undertake a range of internship subjects for credit towards their degree. Student internships are a great way to develop your technical and professional skills and build your graduate career prospects. Students can access exclusive opportunities with highly-regarded organisations or source their own internship in an organisation of interest.
Study Abroad and Exchange
Want to add a global experience to your degree? Faculty of Science students wanting to study overseas have access to many exciting international opportunities.
Research Project Subjects
Undertaking a research project is a fantastic way to develop practical scientific skills. It will also provide valuable experience to students considering honours, masters or a PhD in Science. The Science Research Project SCIE30001 is intended for undergraduate students who have achieved excellent results in the discipline related to the project.
Volunteering and Leadership
During your degree, we encourage you to participate in as many experiences as possible that will expand your academic achievements, develop your personal and professional skills, and provide chances for you to apply your knowledge and extend your learning beyond the classroom.
Student Life and Societies
Get involved! There are a number of science related student clubs and societies that you can join during your time at uni, both to develop yourself socially and intellectually. Plus, they’re a lot of fun! Information about University services can also be found here.
Next Steps is a program of events that helps you consider the different options available to you at any stage of your degree - whether you’re course planning and choosing your major, seeking employment or moving on to further study (coursework and research).
