Career News

The latest issue of Siena Career News is jam packed with information and activities that are sure to stimulate discussion and assist students with gathering information on potential tertiary courses and future careers.  There is absolutely no excuse not to attend at least one of the amazing activities scheduled for May and June!

Some of these include:

·       VCE Careers Expo – on again at the Caulfield Racecourse this weekend.  A fantastic expo with many tertiary organisations present, Defence Force, Police, private institutions.  Take a friend and gather as much information as you can from all of the stands.  Representatives are on hand to answer questions.

·       Law Week Activities in May – if you have a budding lawyer in the family there are many events that are relevant and can help paint a picture of what careers in Law are really like.

·       For parents of students in Years 10 -12 the Northern Metro TIS (Tertiary Information Service) event at Latrobe University is well worth attending.  You will have the opportunity to research study options, tertiary courses and chat to Uni, TAFE and private college representatives.

·       Bond University scholarships- this beautiful university on the Gold Coast is a private institution, there are no Commonwealth Supported Places available in courses.  Scholarships can make attending a lot more affordable. 

·       University of Melbourne  “My Future” series of course information sessions are planned for June/July.

·       Studying in the UK  and USA info sessions – many students are expressing interest in studying overseas.  These Info sessions are a great way of gathering information.

·       For Year 12’s the Community Achievers Program opens at ACU – an application detailing your leadership and community service experience could potentially get you into Law and Physiotherapy with ATAR around 70!

·       Focus on Biomed – what can you do, other than medicine, after studying this?

 Also, just a reminder to Save the Date for our annual Siena Careers Showcase on Thursday 13 June – more information will follow!
