Dear All, 

I am an English girl studying Biomedical Sciences at The University of 
Edinburgh, Scotland.  I graduate this June & my plan is to get into Science 
Communication.  I have a place on a Masters in Science & Communication course 
commencing in 2005, but in the meantime I wish to go travelling & gain 
relevant experience abroad.  

I was wondering whether any of you know of any work experience schemes with 
Science Magazines or any of your top Newspapers in Australia that I could 
apply to? Or, do you have any recommendations of people/ publications that I 
could approach to ask for a short placement? Would any of you be able to offer 
me experience? 

I am looking for a 1-2 week (or longer), unpaid placement, preferably with 
a science reporter, although any reporting experience would be extremely 
beneficial.  (I will not be in Australia until the 2nd half of this year but 
I'd like to be able to set something up now).  If you could please send me any 
suggestions, I would be very grateful.

Thankyou very much.
