Leapfrog Geo Fundamentals for Students


In early 2024 EGRU will collaborate with Seequent and the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG) to offer a short course in Leapfrog Geo Fundamentals for Honours and Postgraduate students.

  • Places on the course are limited and priority will be given to students enrolled in full-time Geoscience Honours or Postgraduate study at an Australian university.
  • Seequent will provide delegates with training licenses and training data.
  • Delegates will need Windows OS, 2 monitors and an external mouse.

Students enrolled in full-time Geoscience Honours or Postgraduate study at universities outside Australia are welcome to register for the course after Monday 22 January 2024 if places are still available.



The proceeds from this short course will go towards supporting an EGRU – SEEQUENT Award in 2024.  Applications for the award will be open to students enrolled full-time at Honours or Postgraduate level in a geoscience major degree at an Australian university, and who use Leapfrog software in their research projects.

Details of the award – amount, eligibility, application guidelines and deadline – will be announced later this year.

If you’re interested in the EGRU – SEEQUENT award send an email to EGRU_training@jcu.edu.au and we will keep you updated.
