This topic will deliver a simulated work experience. Students will have to prepare for a job (CV, application, interview), conduct an industry-relevant project, and reflect on their learning.

  1. Show effective communication skills to a broad range of audiences
  2. Work effectively, cooperatively and productively within a team
  3. Critically analyse and solve scientific problems
  4. Develop an appreciation of requirements needed to be ‘job-ready’

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.

FULL

If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
