Information for Students

It can be daunting to think past the end of your degree and what you might be doing next. What does a career in a particular field actually look like in reality? Should you undertake further study? Which companies are a good fit?  Which industry suits you best?

Being mentored is a powerful tool for you to make connections in industry and enhance your employment outcomes, by providing you with insights into the professional world and helping you to expand your knowledge of career options and plan for life after study.

Please read through the eligibility criteria and program structure to consider if you are able to commit to the program this year, and look out for information sessions in Semester One.
