Student placements

Placements are only offered via a formal agreement between the education provider or employer and Forensic and Scientific Services. If you are looking for a placement with us, firstly get in touch with your education provider or employer. They will need to make formal contact with the Placements Office, as requests from individuals will not be considered.

Forensic and Scientific Services welcomes a select number of tertiary students to complete their practical placements at our facilities. The types of placements we offer include research, clinical (forensic pathology) and professional placements. Our facility is not a hospital and therefore, we cannot accept students on clinical rotation.

Our 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.

We do not offer voluntary placements or secondary school work experience. This is due to the sensitive nature of the services provided, confidentiality requirements and workplace health and safety restrictions.
