Victoria University is proud to be partnering with Outdoors Victoria to host day of hands-on workshops, information and fun for Year 9 and 10 students.

Throughout the day, students will discover how to excel in their future career by studying Outdoor Education.

Take advantage of the many great opportunities the day offers:

  • Explore career paths in outdoor recreation and activity, outdoor education, nature-based therapy and nature-based tourism.
  • Attend tailor-made workshops with a range of inspiring leaders in the outdoors industry.
  • Meet employers in outdoor organisations.
  • Learn through hands-on activities.

Education & career opportunities

As the only metro university offering a Bachelor of Outdoors Education and Environmental Science, and Australia’s only provider of a block learning first year model, Victoria University can set you up for career success in this unique field.

This is a great area to plan a career: outdoor activities and nature-based work are a growing, contributing $6.1 billion to the Victorian economy annually.
