Study with the best.

The ARC Training Centre - Chemical Industries offers a workplace learning approach to fast-tracking the careers of chemistry graduates.

We work with leading employers in Australia's chemical industries. They told us the skills and attributes that they want to see in the next generation of their workforce. We have launched a new course - the Master of Industrial Research (Chemistry) - to give graduates those employable skills and attributes.

During the 2-year course, post-graduate candidates run a significant research project with a chemical company, usually at their site, working with their staff, giving a minimum of 12-months' experience as an industrial R&D chemist.

There is also coursework that companies have told us will enhance the employment prospects of graduates.

We offer stipends of $31,828 per annum.

For 2019, there is currently one opportunity available through the UNSW node and one opportunity through the UniMelb node. The eligibility criteria include a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 75% and English language proficiency.
