Do you have a project/s that you just can’t get around to? Don’t we all!  Perhaps you are now planning for your research to kick off again soon after being paused due to COVID-19 restrictions? Whether it’s academic research assistance, project support or innovative ideas to scope something new, PACE students are available to help, contributing to your work while applying their learning in the real world.

As part of the PACE (Professional and Community Engagement) program, thousands of our students each year undertake activities through a wide range of PACE academic units of study offered across all undergraduate degree programs. For more info go to Partnering with PACE.

PACE students are highly motivated and eager to apply their theoretical knowledge to real world settings. They bring an informed and enthusiastic perspective, as well as discipline-specific knowledge and skills, working on projects and activities that are beneficial for both the students and you.
