Activity overview

How is this program run?

This program is running both face-to-face and online.

What will I do?

The In2Uni Program engages with individuals in targeted schools and communities to build their awareness and aspirations towards higher education and to provide them with the knowledge and skills to get there. This is achieved through a range of activities including mentoring, study skills workshops and on-site experiences for students, teachers and families.

The In2Uni mentors are responsible for the delivery of these activities and are the backbone of the In2Uni program. Mentors will focus on planning and facilitating mentoring and engagement sessions in schools, and supporting school students through learning activities when on campus.
