Student placements

At Forensic and Scientific Services we welcome a select number of tertiary students (coordinated in liaison with the educational provider) to complete their practical placements at our facilities. The types of placements we offer include research, clinical (forensic pathology) and professional placements. We are not a hospital and cannot accommodate students on clinical rotation.

These placements give students the opportunity to be part of solutions for emerging needs, foster collaborative research, and provides our staff with the opportunity to work with and supervise students.

Some postgraduate students who have had their practical placements at our facilities have been identified as potential employees of the future.

Due to the sensitive nature of the work, confidentiality, workplace health and safety restrictions, and the high demand for placements, we do not offer voluntary placements or secondary school students work experience.

If you are considering a placement at Forensic and Scientific Services, firstly contact your education provider or employer to make formal contact with the FSS Placements office.
