Description

SEFS Student Conference 2017

The SEFS student conference is an annual 3 day event, that aims to bring the SEFS RHD graduate student cohort together, endeavoring to connect and empower our student group.

SEFS graduate students are based at 3 separate campuses, which means we rarely spend time together
and learn about the diverse research fields we are involved in. This conference gives you the opportunity to meet students from outside your day to day research life empowering you to get the most out of your candidature, get insight into and advice on career pathways, and importantly, network beyond your immediate research groups.

This year's 3 day conference will be held at the University of Melbourne's Burnley campus and involve workshops and panels with themes designed to complement your research experience (read...extra stuff no one tells you that may help you in your research) and after hours activities that will foster networking opportunities (read...free BBQ and beer events for getting to know other students).

Tickets are free, catering is provided and if you come from outside Melbourne accomodation we'll put you up in accomodation!

Workshops and panels:

  • Managing your degree (how to get the most out of your candidature)

  • Social media and how to spread the word on your research

  • Staying physically and mentally healthy during your candidature

  • Research hacks (useful apps, tricks and resources to make research life easier)

  • Giving and receiving feedback

  • Career panel discussion (industry and academia members to give an inside to their experience and answer student's questions)

After hours activities:

  • Burnley gardens tour

  • Burnley lab and nursery tour

  • BBQ's on day 1 and 2 of the conference

  • Quiz night with quiz master

  • Bonfire at the Burnley Field Station

  • Lawn games on the Burnley grounds
