As an MPhil student you could get the opportunity to attend an overseas conference to present your work and meet the world-leading researchers in your chosen field.

Depending on your area of research, you may also travel for fieldwork, visit collaborating labs interstate or overseas, or attend other research events or symposiums.

Let the world come to you

You'll participate in a range of activities that give you opportunities to meet scientists from the University and around the world.

Regular seminars introduce the latest thinking in specialised areas of science, and each year the University hosts eminent international researchers through our visiting fellows programs.

Career connections

Events that connect students with industry and other employers are held throughout the year. You’ll have the opportunity to network with and learn from professionals in your field.

Skill development

You’ll have access to a wide range of workshops on topics such as managing your data and science communication.


While you’re studying with us, why not take advantage of the many opportunities available for you to get involved with volunteering to extend your learning opportunities, connect with communities, and enhance your employability.
