Immerse yourself in the available opportunities to improve your employability while you study. Get hands on experience with industry internships, network with peer mentors, prepare for a future career in research or broaden your horizons by studying abroad.
Graduate mentoring program
The FVAS Graduate Mentoring program connects graduate students enrolled in Agricultural Sciences, Food Science and Food Packaging and Innovation students with experienced mentors from a range of industries.
Melbourne Peer Mentor Program
The Melbourne Peer Mentor Program is your key first-year Unimelb experience, designed to make your transition to student life easy and fun! Your peer mentor group will be an instant network of familiar faces from your degree with whom you can share experiences and work through transition tips.
As part of your undergraduate University of Melbourne experience, you’ll be matched with an academic adviser in your first year. Your academic adviser will take an active interest in your wellbeing, progress and success throughout your degree.
Research project subjects
A coursework research project subject is an opportunity to undertake detailed independent study on an issue under the guidance of an academic supervisor. You can take one to complete a capstone requirement, prepare for a graduate research degree, or investigate a specific topic in depth.
Industry internships provide you with opportunities to apply the knowledge and skills you’ve developed with genuine, hands-on work experience. They can even lead to other opportunities for work or study and can help you decide the career path you would like to follow.
Exchange and study abroad
We encourage all our students to take advantage of the University’s global partnerships with leading institutions and study overseas for part of their degree. Immerse yourself in new social, cultural and intellectual environments to broaden your knowledge.
Graduate researchers can find information on Study Away applications and procedures on the Graduate Research Hub.
Cross-institutional study enables you to enrol in subjects at other tertiary institutions and have it count toward your degree.
