Work experience

The Florey is the largest neuroscience institute in Australia. We are passionate about developing and driving the next generation of neuroscientists and researchers.

Our work experience program is offered to year 10-12 students who are interested in the development and functioning of the brain; how it works and what happens when it goes wrong. The work experience program runs over a one week period in June and September, with programs offered at the Parkville and Austin Campuses.

The work experience program allows students to observe and collaborate with members of the Florey team and allows them to learn about current and future insights within mental health and neuroscience.


The Florey offers two intakes in 2018:

Intake 1: June /July                                                  

Intake 2: September/October                                         

Closing date for both intakes: 7 February 2018

Please note: The Florey has a limited number of work experience programs available to students.
