Nura Gili Taster Days - UNSW Sydney - Sydney - NSW

On Tuesday, 6th and Thursday, 8th November Nura Gili will be hosting our annual on-campus "Taster Days" for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Years 7 & 8.

The aim of the event is to give students a taste of university life whilst raising awareness of opportunities offered by higher education. The day will involve fun interactive faculty-based sessions whilst introducing the students to the design thinking process, problem solving ability and build their confidence in what is the world of higher education.

Students will be supervised by current UNSW Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and staff, who will share their experiences of higher education and join in on all the fun on the day.

Nura Gili will cover the cost of transport to and from school, materials and catering.
