Interchange 2016

UNSW Interchange: Find your inner entrepreneur

Change yourself,
Change the world

Interchange is open to all UNSW International students. Interchange is open to both undergraduate and postgraduate international students. It is an active learning journey designed to help you find your inner entrepreneur and develop your professional skills, including communication, innovation and leadership.

Whether you want to be part of a social enterprise, gain confidence, give yourself an advantage in your future career, meet other students or start a business - Interchange is a unique and highly valuable opportunity open to you.

Interchange is a 4 day TED style conference program, normally only available to you once you start your career.  The program will involve 200 International Students from 7 Australian universities, studying all subject areas - allowing you to connect with new people to gain  insight into innovation and entrepreneurship.  How your Interchange journey evolves is up to you.  At each intersection, experienced entrepreneurs and innovators will be there to support you; guide your learning and sharpen your ideas.

The program is funded by StudyNSW, NSW Trade & Investment, it is free to you and will be formally recognised on your AHEGS. Participating universities include: UNSW Australia, UTS, University of Sydney, University of Newcastle, Macquarie University, WSU and ACU.
