A career mentoring program that connects Faculty of Science students with UQ’s global community of alumni and professionals in the sciences.
Kick-start a rewarding career journey with the support of a mentor
Science Connect is a career mentoring program that teaches you how to think about your own employability by giving you the opportunity to connect with a mentor of your choice.
As part of the program, you will work together with your mentor in a series of one-on-one meetings where you can seek guidance, gain a new perspective, build your network and learn new skills so you can enhance your overall employability and kick-start your career in a way that’s relevant and meaningful to you.
Being a mentee will not only enrich your experience and success at UQ, but also empower you to create a rewarding career in the sciences and beyond - in a way that's meaningful to you. Which is a big part of why you’re here at UQ after all.
Applications to become a mentee in the 2021 intake of Science Connect have now closed. If you are interested in joining as a mentee in future intakes, please email the Science Connect Program Coordinator.
