Many asylum seekers and refugees arrive in Australia at an early age. They complete their schooling and have the ambition to participate in further studies. As they may be the first in their family to navigate tertiary education and professional employment, the CareerSeekers university program is key in helping many young asylum seekers and refugees achieve their goals.
As university students, participants undertake their internships during university breaks and sometimes work year-round as they near the end of their degree. The program is designed for students to return to their workplace each year while completing their degree.
