Exceptional opportunities for exceptional people

Eligible team members who are studying or with to study an undergrad or grad course at an approved university, college or training provider can apply.

If you wish to study towards a career in nursing, as a Registered Nurse or Enrolled Nurse, or if you're already in a nursing role and would like to pursue a career in leadership, there are numerous pathways to post-graduate qualifications available.

There are also select options available if you are interested in study in the areas of Lifestyle, Hospitality and Leadership.


Opal has always been flexible - I was able to work my Opal roster around my university commitments and placements... There's job security too because you're in a long-term role, and of course, it's a growth industry, so there are lots of opportunities to develop your career. "
