Check out SciConnect a new social platform where you can connect with your peers

Published: 20 May 2021

SciConnect is a Social Network Platform for all undergraduate science students, run on MS Teams. The purpose of this site is to create stronger program cohorts, increase communication across the science community and provide an avenue for students to connect with like-minded peers, socialise and get support from other students. Guest appearances from science staff, academics and relevant student services will also be facilitated.

The site will be divided into channels according to programs and Schools. Trained Student Ambassadors will be responsible for leading content and engagement on each channel of the Teams site, which is what we are contacting you about today.
