Entry requirements

Applicants are required to be female, Australian residents, must be competent in communication and mathematics and have not previously completed these qualifications. These skills are equivalent to completion of Year 10, but may also be achieved through previous work or informal learning experiences. The course has been designed to meet the needs of women who are returning to work, seeking a career change, recently completed high school or as an alternative pathway to university. The learning environment is structured to provide a high level of support for students returning to formal education.

Industry Engagement

A key focus of the course is to provide participants with an insight into oil and gas operations from a female perspective and to address barriers that may discourage women from entering the industry.  As part of the course students will visit workplaces, have access to industry representatives and participate in valuable presentations.
