Students participate in this compulsory course throughout their entire Bachelors or Masters program of study. During this course students will get involved with their local IT community through attendance and participation in events, such as seminars, workshops, expos, discussion forums etc. Where possible students will also participate in short term work experience. The aim is to provide students with a broad understanding of the IT industry, its research foundations and its place in servicing society. This course is open to students to find the activities that provide them the best transition into the workplace and allows them to connect with the area of the IT industry they are most interested. Finally, this course allows students to build a picture of what a career may look like in the domain of their choosing.
* excluding students enrolled in a Postgraduate Clinical Psychology, Professional Pathway Psychology or Professional Pathway Social Work program. For accredited program and student contribution information please visit our CSP page.
Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
