The Recognition of Academic Excellence celebrates the exceptional academic achievements of students studying in the Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences.

The event is held annually around the start of Semester 2, with invitations sent in June.

The event includes a presentation by a guest speaker on a topical area relevant to students such as study, careers and employability. An awards presentation hosted by the Executive Dean and Associate Dean (Academic) will round off formal proceedings. Students will then have an opportunity to network with their peers and staff in an informal environment over food and drinks.
