Industry Opportunities

At the University of Adelaide, we continually strive to provide unique and valuable opportunities for each student.

Industry programs and placements offer exceptional opportunities to apply and further develop professional skills in your specific field and chosen career.

Higher degree by research (HDR) students can turn theory into practice in industry while building, fostering, and enhancing professional contacts and networks. Each student’s career goals are different. With your chosen path, completing an industry work placement will ultimately build your skills, expertise, and enhance your experience.

Participation in one of these unique industry engagement programs will provide a strong complement to your academic studies and give you a head start in future employment opportunities.
