Program

Specialised outreach programs have been developed to complement and enrich the Uni Bridges curriculum, relating to the theme of Preventing and Curing Disease. These outreach activities provide the students with hands on experience to bring the Uni Bridges curriculum to life. Students access La Trobe academics and researchers and gain an appreciation of the many contributions derived from the sciences and mathematics to maintaining the health of our society.
