How do I find out about upcoming events and workshops?
Once you have registered with BUILD, you will be able to view the program of BUILD events, workshops, seminars and community activities on your CareerHub dashboard. Most of these are BUILD only events but some are more widely open to interested students.
You will also receive a monthly eNewsletter called the “monthly BUILD Up” that features upcoming BUILD opportunities
Must I attend every BUILD event and workshop?
All members are required to complete the standard suite of BUILD core workshops to set the foundation and framework that supports your leadership journey. There are four workshops that equate to 40 points which is the minimum requirement to complete the core part of your program.
Members can then cherry pick from the electives options that fit within your schedule and suit your personal interests. You just need to ensure that you complete a total of 60 points of electives
Once you have a minimum of 40 core points and 60 elective points totalling 100 points, you have completed the BUILD Program.
BUILD Endorsed Overseas Global Experiences
A natural progression of your BUILD leadership journey is to consider an immersive overseas experience, such as a six month Global Exchange or a 2-6 week Global Short Program. These experiences can cap off your preparation for a truly international career. If you would like to know more about these overseas experiences, please visit these program websites and contact the teams that coordinate these programs. All UTS approved overseas global experiences count towards BUILD elective points.
