It is really important to students that their co-curricular achievements are recognised alongside their formal degree, so they can demonstrate to future employers their competitive standing amongst graduates. The university encourages all staff members engaging students in volunteering to be part of a university wide effort to support and recognise our students through this the process.
UNSW Advantage recognition also demonstrates to students the calibre of your program as a professional development opportunity. It helps you attract those students who are interested in developing skills and strengths and enhancing their graduate standing. It also incentivises students to complete programs they commit to, in order to gain the recognition on AHEGS.
UNSW Advantage will also help increase students’ awareness of your own co-curricular activity through the additional promotion through the UNSW Advantage online quiz and online directory, relevant newsletters, events and social media marketed by Student Development.
UNSW Advantage also provides full and ongoing support to any staff or student wanting help in nominating an activity, as well as offering consultation in how to develop, promote or deliver a high quality volunteering program effectively.
UNSW Advantage also assists in the sharing of best practice through quarterly newsletters and networking events each year for UNSW Advantage Providers delivering co-curricular program across campus.
