The course has been designed to meet the needs of women who are returning to work, seeking a career change or alternative pathways 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.
