Talented Students Program

The TSP is designed for students to taste research from the onset of their degree programs. They are introduced to academics throughout the Faculty of Science, attend events and research seminars and are given the opportunity to conduct cutting edge research from the first year of their degree.

The TSP coordinator and ambassadors setup a range of activities to grow student skills and experience in the research sphere. 

An essential part of the TSP is the ability to drive your own research aspirations. Students are provided the resources and support to grow their research experiences. As a student you work closely with a research group engaging in their day-to-day activities and projects. The research you undertake is purely from an interest point of view.
