UNSW Student Volunteers

Enrich your university experience!

Do you want to help high school students get to university?  Then volunteer with us and join a large network of university students inspiring young people.  

U@UNSW is a program that takes into account circumstances that may have impacted on a high school student’s HSC and ATAR score and gives them an opportunity to improve their chances of getting an offer to study at UNSW. 

We want you!

If you are enthusiastic about volunteering, some of the benefits include:

  • increasing your social and professional networks
  • gaining experience in working with young people
  • developing leadership and communication skills
  • qualifying for the UNSW Advantage Program.

The U@UNSW Ambassadors and team really helped me decide what I wanted to study and gave me the tools and knowledge to study at uni level. It also helped me gain entry to my first preference! The experience made me more confident going into the HSC and also uni.
