ASPIRE is an outreach program that works with students from low socioeconomic  backgrounds in schools across Sydney and regional New South Wales helping them discover university. The program involves students from Kindergarten to Year 12.  Through workshops, activities, campus visits and events we aim to:

  • Build awareness of university among students who may think that university is not for them
  • Encourage students to think about options for their future, and help students to achieve their full potential
  • Increase the number of university students who are from low socioeconomic status backgrounds

We work in partnership with ASPIRE schools and are supported by an enthusiastic team of UNSW student volunteers (ASPIRE Ambassadors) and university staff.
