A group of students assess their study options at Burnet

More than 30 keen students took advantage of the access to facilities and staff giving them a rare glimpse of life at Burnet.

The evening attracted students from University of Melbourne, Monash, La Trobe and RMIT eager to hear about the wide range of study options and projects Burnet has to offer in 2012.

Associate Professors Rose Ffrench and Bruce Loveland took the students on tours of Burnet’s labs, which were a big hit.

Education and Grants Management Officer Dr Maria Davoren said she received a lot of positive feedback about how well organised the night was.

“The students really appreciated the unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with researchers and tour the facilities,” Maria said.

Sarah Charnaud from the Centre for Immunology and Phyong Nguyen from the Centre for Population Health gave entertaining presentations with an insight into both the serious side and the social side of being a student at Burnet.
