As part of some university courses, you may have the chance in presenting your work to various audiences including national and international conferences and writing and publishing research data in mass media including the scientific journals.

Some education providers have specific programs such as study exchange, internship, work placement and mentoring programs. All these programs provide the chance for students to connect and engage with other students and professionals in other industries.
