The Science Union hosts a set of hour-long fort-nightly careers talks for the benefit of science students. The aim of the talks is to provide career information to the students from professionals in the workplace, which will give the students an idea of what a professional in their discipline does in their job every day: the perks, the negatives, why they do it and how they got to where they are. 

Each talk represents a major specific career; for example, chemistry, physics, psychology, genetics etc. These would also partially extend into relevant Post-Graduate coursework programs, such as Medicine, Engineering and research work. The professionals invited are recent UWA alumni or, in the case of academics, UWA research associates.

We are currently devising a schedule for these talks which posted here closer to the start of semester.

The Science Union also hosts an annual Science Careers Expo. This event runs in second semester for 2 hours during the day on the University campus. Its aim is to provide information and networking opportunities between current science students and industry companies.

Companies and organisations who have attended in the past include:

- Woodside



- PathWest

- Ecologia

- Natural Area Management and Services; and more!

More information will be available closer second semester. If your company is interested in attending the Careers Expo, please e-mail Julian Bocking at
