COVID-19 update: Due to COVID-19, we are currently restricting visitors to WEHI and are not hosting any events, seminars or tours until further notice. This is a precautionary measure to support the health and safety of visitors, staff, students and tenants. We appreciate your understanding with this difficult decision. Information about specific education programs will be communicated to prospective students when available.

Work experience

Our Secondary School Work Experience Program gives students the opportunity to learn about careers in medical research. Please note that due to the pandemic, WEHI is not currently accepting applications for work experience. Please register to receive updates about future opportunities.

Discovery tours

We offer tours to students, teachers and members of the public. Learn about our many discoveries, meet our scientists and visit our laboratories.


Our biomedical animations explain our discoveries in a scientifically accurate and easily understood way.


The Gene Technology Access Centre (GTAC) is located in University High School, next door to our Parkville campus.

Schools students can access education programs in molecular and cell biology, and work with young scientists at a laboratory bench.

Science career talks

Is your school holding a careers day? Our scientists are available to visit schools to talk about their scientific career and what it is like to be a biomedical researcher.

Contact our events team for enquiries and bookings.
