Have you ever thought about how you could contribute to research without leaving the house? As you try to maintain social engagement during self-isolation, citizen science offers a unique opportunity. You don’t need expertise, just time and interest.


With social distancing in place for a long while to come, it's the perfect time to consider studying online! We're the Australian leader in postgraduate social impact education, delivered in partnership with Swinburne Uni, UNSW Sydney, and UWA.
