The UNSW Hero Program (UNSW Heroes) helps prepare graduates to take on the challenges imposed by a rapidly evolving workplace by equipping them with an innovative and entrepreneurial mindset, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and most importantly confidence.
The program uses a three-tier structure including; Industry workshops; an innovative project and volunteering work experience.
The Hero Program involves a range of responsibilities:
The program runs each session and is open to all UNSW students – first years to postgrads, arts to engineers. We like diversity. Whether you're a curious mind with a flair for creativity or just an enthusiastic, eager soul looking for personal development and some fun - we want to hear from you.
Applications open around mid-session break. Visit our website for more information and to apply online.
Mandatory induction, training and skills workshops run during the 4-5 weeks prior to the start of session.
Regular mentoring and feedback sessions will be scheduled throughout the duration of the program.
The program runs during the session breaks typically 4-5 weeks before start of session. The core program runs for 7 consecutive weeks and concludes by Week 2 of session.
Expected commitment: 10-15 hours a week for the core program to attend workshops and work on an intrapreneurship group project for UNSW. 20 hours of additional community engagement volunteering can be undertaken on top of this to contribute towards the Leadership Program.
