SPEAKER SERIES


Sport & Business
 
The third event in the Torrens University Speaker Series features an all-star panel discussing the relationship between sport and business.

Australia’s reputation as a nation of sports lovers is well established, and what happens off the field is now almost as important (and controversial) as what happens on it. Legendary sports journalist Tim Gilbert will oversee a star-studded panel – our very own Craig Foster, Adjunct Professor of Sport & Social Responsibility at Torrens University, alongside his brilliant former SBS co-host Lucy Zelić once again. Also joining us, the iconic Adam Goodes, former Australian Cricket Captain Michael Clarke, Paul Harragon, also known as 'The Chief', Caitlin Bassett, World Cup-winning captain of the Australian Diamonds netball team and Joel Thompson, Manly Sea Eagles player and founder of The Mindset Project.

Whether you’re about to take the first step towards a career in Sport or Business, pondering a change in direction, or you are a professional looking to upskill, this is an event you won’t want to miss.

When: Nov 19, 2020
Time: 6:45 pm - 8:45 pm AEDT

UCAT AND MEDICAL INTERVIEWS
 
 UCAT Preparation

Students, who will be completing UCAT in 2021, should ensure their exam-readiness and continue with consistent UCAT preparation.

Year 10 and 11 students are encouraged to consider early exam training.  Being UCAT-ready means being well-informed as well as practising UCAT-style questions consistently over a longer period of time as opposed to leaving it until the time when you need to devote full attention to Year 12 work.
