Overview

The WiSE Program is for women studying at Western Sydney University in the Schools of Science & Health and Computing, Engineering & Mathematics. The WiSE Program Team works closely with employers, recruiters, professionals and academics at the University to deliver a flexible, free and fun program for students.

Students are warmly invited to join the WiSE Program to meet other students, learn about where your degree can take you and access workshops to get you career-ready. You can have business cards printed, receive help with your LinkedIn profile, have your resume reviewed, practice mock interviews, get help with work wear and more.

Students in the WiSE Program also have opportunities to meet employers, visit workplaces and attend industry events.

There is also a Mentoring Strand in which students can apply to be paired with a professional in their field of study for career advice and support.

Student registrations for the WiSE Program 2017 are now open. Students can register anytime during the year.

For more information, contact the WiSE Program Coordinator, wise@westernsydney.edu.au

Students can choose from a range of on-line, face-to-face and off campus activities, depending on their needs and interests. Students can do as many, or few, activities as they wish throughout the year. However, if they collect 100 points, they are awarded a Completion Certificate at the end of year celebration.
