Students

The student experience at UNSW ensures a learning and teaching environment that provides exposure to teaching excellence, outstanding research opportunities, a vibrant campus life, international engagement and infrastructure and services to address students' educational, personal and financial needs.

 


 Kate Smith, a student  in the Faculty of Engineering, explains the significance and impact of receiving an award to attend UNSW:

“This support means a great deal to me: to know that someone I have never met cares about my pursuits and dreams. It has taken a lot of stress out of my big move to Sydney and is providing me with some breathing space as I am getting used to university life and the costs involved (accommodation, textbooks and student fees).”

ASPIRE Program

UNSW initiated ASPIRE to positively impact the educational and career aspirations of school students from sectors of the community with significantly low participation in higher education.  Through an integrated program of school workshops, campus visits and activities ASPIRE guides students to make informed choices about higher education and career options.

One of the great benefits of the ASPIRE program is that it connects school students  with positive role models and provides an excellent  opportunity for UNSW students to volunteer as ASPIRE ambassadors.

Through participation in the ASPIRE Program, UNSW student volunteers are able to enhance their life skills and broaden their experience beyond the academic curriculum, resulting in well rounded graduates who are able to contribute to Australia’s social capital.

Basser College Scholarship Fund

Moving from home to Sydney and a University of 45,000 students can be a daunting prospect for many and particularly students from Indigenous, rural or low socio-economic backgrounds. They are often a long way from their own family in a very new and challenging environment. Membership of a college community is particularly beneficial to them in giving a strong support network and a sense of belonging.

As part of the redevelopment of the Kensington Colleges, which is due for completion in early 2014, we would like to offer a number of full and part scholarships. Up to 10 rooms in Basser College will be set aside for this scholarship program. Scholarships will be provided for a student for 2 years, which is the average time that people spend in colleges.
