The SA Division of the Agricultural Institute of Australia (AIA), in partnership with the Adelaide University Agricultural Students Association (AUASA) have a keen focus on supporting the development of students and early career professionals in having an enjoyable, productive and rewarding educational experience, while laying a solid career foundation.


The 2024 Student Compendium is an initiative to collate the breadth of opportunities for students studying primary industries and natural resource management. It aims to assist the next generation of vocational education, training and tertiary students plus secondary school teachers, and careers advisers (and their students) to discover opportunities such as careers, scholarships, graduate programs and training in the primary industries sector.

The compendium is a resource made for students by students. The fourth edition
was made by 5 undergraduate students. Interns for the 2024 Student Compendium, 
Mackenzie Coopman, Caleb Schwartz and Emily Pearce (not present) have been selected
via an expression of interest to work alongside Emily Adams, Communications and 
Socials Intern and Tayla Blight, Project Officer Intern.


The Agricultural Institute Australia is the peak industry body for agricultural and natural resource management professionals and AIA is committed to advancing the professional application of science and technology for the sustainable development of agriculture and natural resource management in Australia. The AIA recognises the importance of building capacity within the next generation of agricultural professionals, hence the linkage between the AIA-SA division and AUASA. Pictured with our student working body are Bruce Hancock and Craig Davis representing AIA-SA.
