Gaining employment in the 21st century workplace is not just about technical understanding and subject knowledge. To be competitive, graduates need to demonstrate to employers that they have the discipline-specific skills required, as wells as a broader range of employability skills. We have a three year program designed to ensure you have everything you need for the world of work.
Employability Skills can be defined as the transferable essential skills, personal qualities and values needed by an individual to make them employable. They are often called 'soft skills', 'enterprise skills' or 'workplace skills'. You can read more about our program here.
A St Hilda’s student dares to be different. We volunteer. We care about the world. We want to make a positive contribution towards change for social good. Fearlessly authentic, a St Hilda’s student knows that there is not just one way to be a leader, but has integrated their own unique approach to step up and show up. Your university degree is really important to your future, but at St Hilda's, we will ensure that your education prepares you well for what's ahead.
Helping you develop and launching into the world is what we do. Cultivating your career is on our agenda. Every student at St Hilda’s is guided by three mentors: an academic mentor, a peer mentor and an alumni mentor for their three years at college. You will benefit from all of the support you receive, and you may get a job from our connections.
