The UNSW Winter School is a fully supervised, week-long residential program designed to provide Indigenous students in years 10, 11 and 12 with an opportunity to experience university life.
The program is coordinated by Nura Gili who covers the costs for all participants. During Winter School, 100 students are introduced to tertiary studies in an area of their choice whilst also participating in university life with fellow Indigenous students from around the country.
Apart from the team at Nura Gili and the relevant staff in each faculty, supervisors make up a very important component of Winter School. Each faculty has two allocated day supervisors and there are also dedicated night supervisors who stay on campus each night for the duration of the program.
Supervisors for the UNSW Winter School Program must be Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, Currently studying or recently graduated from UNSW and have a Strong Academic Record and Good Academic Standing.
Students are notified of positions via email and all applications are available online at the Nura Gili website.
Mandatory training is held 2 weeks before Winter School.
First Week in July.
