On Friday 31 August 2012 Students 55 senior secondary students from around the State attended the Health Sciences Taster day. Students participated in interactive workshops relating to the five undergraduate degrees offered by HLS. Workshops included exercise science, environmental health, health and nutrition, medical radiation science, cell biology and biomedical science.
Human Life Sciences spokeswoman Sue Musgrave said the workshops are designed to give students practical experience together with information on which to base future study and career decisions.
“The workshops are very hands-on and will be led by our great team of academics,” Ms Musgrave said.
“This is a great opportunity for students to find out more about the range of health science degrees offered in the North and to see the excellent facilities we have within Human Life Sciences.”
The Taster Day will be offered again in 2014 with the information package available by the end of June on the HLS website: http://www.utas.edu.au/human-life-sciences

“The opportunities were fantastic and the knowledge of the different aspects of health careers was great. I really enjoyed the day and I would like to thank everyone involved in the day”.
“I enjoyed the whole day. It was a great experience and very hands on day. It really allowed for an in depth look at the courses that are offered”.
“I thought that the student speech was really interesting, it showed what his experiences were like at Uni and a bit of what to expect”.
