Student Connect: it’s all about you!

There's a lot you can do at university. There are exciting opportunities and resources, and many different learning pathways you can choose.

The Student Connect program is designed with early career planning in mind. Starting to think about your choices from first year is important to help you feel clearer about your direction and what's important to you.

Together, we will identify employability skills and graduate attributes you will develop during your time at university. These transferable skills are invaluable tools for your career choices and opportunities.

Over 95% of students who come to our appointments leave feeling motivated, connected and knowing what to do next.

Who can book an appointment?

Undergraduate and graduate students from all year levels.
