Work experience

We’re passionate about developing the next generation of neuroscientists and researchers, and offer a work experience program to years 10–12 students. Work experience at The Florey is a great way for students to observe researchers directly in a laboratory or clinical setting, and in a range of locations and fields.

Due to a high level of demand our work experience program is full for the remainder of 2023 and we are unable to accept any further applications. Please contact the Student Support team for queries or use our form below.
