Discover the leader in You!

The UNSW Leadership Program is open to any student committed to learning about themselves and others, and building their skills and confidence to become a leader of the future.

It is open to all students and is designed to be entirely flexible: complete the program at your own pace and select the learning components and practical experience that suits you.

It is also accredited under UNSW Advantage for recognition on your AHEGS.

About the programAbout

The UNSW Leadership Program

The Program is a combination of practical & engaging workshops to help you develop important leadership skills and knowledge, and a short volunteering placement we call 'community engagement' in a setting of your choice. It is designed to be completed alongside your study load.

To ensure a rich and varied learning experience that will broaden your thinking, the learning content has been developed and is delivered by staff from many different specialist areas of the university including Student Development, New South Innovations, The Michael Crouch Innovation Centre, Careers and Employment, Student Development International and Equity and Diversity.

Key datesAbout

Join any year, either in Semester 1 or 2

You can complete the program at any stage of your degree, and enrol at any time. The learning component is run from Week 1 to Week 8 of each semester. The 20 hour Community Engagement component can be completed at any time during the program, in a block or for just a few hours each week over several weeks.

Why get involved?About

Develop yourself and your resume!

The Program is a great way to challenge yourself, learn about your strengths and develop the soft skills that are so crucial to effective leadership. Many students thoroughly enjoy the volunteering component, and continue to work with the organisation beyond the program. The program is at a level that is achievable for all students, but will stretch you enough to be a really worthwhile use of your time.
