What’s involved?

In an informal setting, you’ll talk to a small group of students about your career path (approx. 7-8 conversations lasting about 5 minutes each). The students might ask you about your study, fields of research, and current role, how you got to where you are today, and where you might be heading. You won’t need to pre-prepare anything, just turn up ready to answer the questions the NYSF participants have for you.

When & Where?

There will be three separate events and opportunities to be involved, two in Canberra and one in Brisbane. We welcome you to join for multiple dates if you can, or just one of the dates. Please click the dates below that you would like to attend to complete your registration. If you want to attend multiple events, you will need to complete a separate registration for each event. You’ll find more info about the event on the registration page,
