The Faculty of Science will offer work experience to Year 10 students in June each year. We provide students with a sample of activities that are part of a career in science including conducting experiments, attending seminars of new work, collaborating with others on research projects and presenting your own findings. Students will discover what it is like to be a scientist by participating in interactive workshops and activities in a discipline of their choice. Participants enjoy meeting like-minded new friends and scientific role models as well as getting a taste of university life.

While every effort is made to place as many students interested in the work experience program as possible, this is a very popular program and we are restricted by other University teaching and research commitments. We can only offer work experience on the dates listed below.

Follow this link to the Faculty of Science's website for details on dates and the application process.
