HRI Virtual Student Open Day @ Online Event
May 2 @ 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm

HRI is hosting an online student open day on Tuesday, 17th May 2022 from 12:00pm to 1:15pm (AEST).

 

This will give potential students and future RA’s the chance to learn more about what we do at HRI and get a feel for whether they would like to pursue study under our world-class researchers.

 

I would particularly encourage any students who are nearing completing of undergraduate degrees and interested in pursuing honours to attend, as our scientists are always interested in supervising up and coming researchers. I would also encourage those who have completed their honours or masters, as we have the RA Pathways to PhD program which may be of interest to them.
