“I really enjoyed the opportunity to put my theoretical knowledge into practical use. To see a problem fixed because of test work conducted was extremely rewarding and it feels like my time at University is starting to pay off.”

 Vasil Novachov - Metallurgy Vacation Student, Cataby

“The foundations I have gained in this time have been invaluable, and I will continue to value learning experiences as I build my career.
Thank you to everyone who helped me in some way – whether it was transferring valuable knowledge or simply showing me how to use the hot water tap or printer. It’s these small touches that make someone feel as welcome as I did.”

Christelle Smith - Human Resources Vacation Student, Perth
