Student Opportunities

Career development opportunities

We prepare our students for global professional careers through a range of initiatives designed to enrich their skills.

From the way we’ve designed study options and timetables, to exciting opportunities to connect with businesses in Adelaide and overseas, we ensure our students graduate industry-ready.

Our suite of opportunities is strengthened by invaluable industry connections, links with international partners and award-winning support services which set up our students for success.

During their studies, students can:

  • Seek career guidance and expert advice through one of our mentoring programs
  • Undertake an internship with a local organisation
  • Build transferable enterprise skills employers value
  • Complete an overseas study experience
  • Add a second qualification by studying a combined degree or a bachelor-masters package
  • Maximise timetable breaks through intensive courses during Summer and Winter School
