    Join us in celebrating a significant occasion honouring the achievements, resilience, and vibrant culture of our Indigenous community within the university.

  • Our Student Success Team aim to enhance the student experience at UNSW. We work to equip all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at UNSW with the skills they need to thrive in an ever-changing and innovative world.

  • The UNSW Indigenous Admission Scheme provides an alternative pathway for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to gain entry into a UNSW undergraduate program outside of Pre-program degrees.

  • UNSW’s Indigenous Pre-programs offer a holistic pre-entry university experience for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. Our programs are both an alternative entry pathway to UNSW and a degree-specific preparatory program.

  • UNSW and Nura Gili are excited to launch two new high school programs to give students the opportunity to tackle big issues and gain leadership skills.
