Student Life and Learning produce a wide range of publications to promote their various services, programs and initatives to students and staff.

We have made a number of these available to download from this page in PDF format. You may want to refer students to these publications as a way of letting them know about services which may be of use to them during their studies.

If you require hard copies of any of these publications for use in your school, faculty or service point then please contact the department named on the individual publication. Alternatively you can email and we will be happy to help.

Learning, development and support opportunities  


A large array of co-curricular learning and development opportunities and support services to help students get the most out of their time at UNSW.

Transitioning to University

A comprehensive guide for new and returning students
Available throughout the year this one-stop-shop assists students with IT and Library support, ID card pick-up and help with navigating online services and systems. They can also get information about enrolment, key dates and University processes like exams and applying for documents, or something as simple as directions around campus.

This resource guide provides supporters of UNSW students with a wealth of information about the university experience from pre-entry to graduation.

Support for International Students

A comprehensive guide for international students which includes information about our arrival services, cultural mentors, orientation and workshops and programs held throughout the year.

For international students looking to improve their English language skills and meet new people.


For all students wanting to use their knowledge and experience as a senior to help newly arrived international students adjust and feel at home in their new environment


Student Development offers a wide variety of volunteering opportunities to help students grow in their confidence, gain leadership skills and acquire organisational knowledge that is attractive to employers.

UNSW Social  

UNSW Social is a networking app designed to encourage students to meet up face-to-face on campus. Students can:

  • Meet others with mutual interests, hobbies and skills
  • Find colleagues to help with assignments and projects
  • Build a stronger network of friends
  • Enhance your networks and career prospects

Professional Development

Our prestigious AHEGS accredited Leadership Program offers students a mix of formal training, volunteering and development workshops to help them gain the edge in the workforce.

In collaboration with a number of industry partners, GAP is designed by industry to assist students in developing the professional skills employers really look for. These organisations are seeking students who can complement their technical skills with the right 'soft' skills in order to create more efficient and productive work environments.
This program is an initiative to aid UNSW international students with English as a second language to further develop their communication skills in a professional setting and gain practical workplace experience to enhance their career opportunities.
The Program consists of two components:
  • A three-day seminar on business communication, customer service skills, employer expectations and the recruitment process
  • A 50-100 hour office internship program organised by Careers and Employment and run in various departments at UNSW
