Political Training Seminar


Welcome to the AUJS Political Training Seminar (PTS) – your gateway to the heart of Australian politics.

PTS is a once in a life-time opportunity to immerse yourself in the complex world of Australia’s Parliament House.

Over three days in Canberra, our nation’s capital, you’ll have unparalleled access to decision-makers, influential politicians, media personalities, and more. For over 25 years, PTS has helped to ignite student’s passion for political engagement.

PTS is all about fostering open dialogue – with speakers from all corners of the political spectrum. You’ll get to ask your burning questions and receive honest insights into how everything really works.

Due to limited availability, we cannot guarantee spots for all applicants. To secure your place, we strongly encourage you to submit your applications as early as possible.

In 2024, PTS will run from Sunday 17 March until Tuesday 19 March.

Dates for 2025 are dependant on the Parliamentary sitting calendar which is usually released in November/December. But typically the conference runs in March or August. You can express your interest and we’ll make sure to keep you up to date.
