The number of students from disadvantaged backgrounds enrolling at university is set to increase following a $4.6 million expansion of UNSW’s ASPIRE program.
"If you can dream it, you can do it." For students who've missed out on their preferred course, there's a growing number of alternative pathways to university, writes Professor Joan Cooper.
Talented students who complete HSC courses early can now start their studies at UNSW while still at school, under a new partnership with the NSW Board of Studies.
UNSW's ASPIRE program for disadvantaged high school students is expanding to primary schools thanks to a major funding boost from the Federal Government.
