  • What is a cadetship?

    The Wirltu Yarlu Cadetship Program offers students the chance to enhance their work-integrated learning experience by undertaking a placement related to their degree and professional development goals.

    A cadetship can be tailored to include professional development, technical skills (lab work or fieldwork), networking, and contribution to research that shapes the future.
