The Waratah Education Foundation announced approval for funding for UNSW’s Access Pathways Programs for 2021 for 3 years. The WEF support will help sustain the following three initiatives:
UNSW Winter Gateway Program is a weeklong intensive HSC program that provides academic resources and information to enable educationally disadvantaged Year 12 students from across NSW to better succeed in their HSC.
UNSW Spring Gateway Program is an experiential week for over 150 Year 11-12 metro & regional low SES students. Students self-select subject streams and create a subject specific learning portfolio over the week. This portfolio along with an interview at the end of the week, students may gain an early conditional offer to any UNSW undergraduate degree program.
The Indigenous Law Pre-Program is an access pathway to study Law at UNSW. This 3.5-week intensive residential preparatory course designed to help First Nation students develop the necessary skills to successfully complete law at UNSW. It provides Year 12 Students with an introduction to university life within an environment with provides culturally appropriate support.
Combined these 3 programs will provide disadvantaged high school students with excellent alternative pathways into UNSW Law and WEF are pleased to be able to provide this support for the next 3 years.
