A bumper turnout of more than 200 “next-Gen” scientists and researchers attended the annual AMREP Student Night, showcasing project and career opportunities for 2019.

Burnet was well-represented with staff and current students from across the three technical disciplines - Life Sciences, Public Health, International Development - keen to advise the potential postgraduates of what fantastic opportunities were available. Touring Burnet’s labs was also very popular and a great chance to see ‘behind the scenes’ of a medical research facility.

Burnet Education Officer Dr Raffi Gugasyan, said it was inspiring to see so many students considering postgraduate opportunities and encouraged them to visit our Education portal.

“The Annual Burnet student night attracted more than 200 prospective students, who were interested in a 4th year Honours year or a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD),“ Dr Gugasyan said:

“The students had the opportunity to meet Burnet students and research Group Heads to discuss potential projects across all three Disciplines. Overall, the event was a great success.
