The Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health offers internship subjects at 200-level, that provide research experience opportunities for strong students to develop and hone their practical and research skills. Through an internship subject, students with an interest in research have an opportunity to gain experience “at the bench” or “in the field” as part of their research training. For further information including pre-requisites please refer to the Information and Assessment form below.
Faculty Prizes and Awards
2021 Faculty prize nights
Faculty Prize Nights are a great way to celebrate the achievements of students. Unfortunately, these events are currently on hold, but we are working towards holding these celebrations later in 2021. Information will be communicated to students and prize recipients when it becomes available.
