UNSW Medicine aims to ensure that every student is empowered to access the education they deserve, regardless of their circumstances or background. We believe that every child has the right to an education and to reach their academic potential.


UNSW operates a number of schemes aimed at empowering young people to access higher education and helping students from disadvantaged backgrounds achieve their academic goals. These include the Aspire Program reaches out to communities where the number of students who go to university is low, to work with Schools to build confidence and provide information and experiences which put a university education within reach.
