Information and Guidelines for Program Providers About UNSW Advantage

In alignment with UNSW’s 2025 Strategy, the Advantage Program is undergoing a review process as part of a broader enhancement project to ensure that accredited co-curricular and professional opportunities that feature on students’ AHEGS continue to achieve our collective goal in providing valuable student experiences and developing well-rounded graduates. To allow time to complete this review and implement the changes, an interim process has been established - Find out more.


Are you a UNSW Faculty, School or Division currently offering a co-curricular activity or program to students? Are you a Student Organisation with an executive committee, or offering professional development or volunteering opportunities for your members?

We encourage you to nominate your opportunities and programs for accreditation under UNSW Advantage. Accreditation through UNSW Advantage enhances the prestige of what you offer. UNSW Advantage also authorises the activity or executive position(s) to be listed on participating students' official AHEGS.
