The University of Sydney’s Compass – find your way to higher education
(‘Compass’) program encourages primary and secondary school students to participate in higher education.
It is a partnership between the University of Sydney, the NSW Department of Education and Communities, and selected secondary and primary schools in Sydney. This partnership will also expand to regional areas of NSW during 2012.
Since the launch in 2009 Compass
has engaged over 30,000 students, teachers and parents both in their schools, communities and here on campus. The
program also collaborates closely with all faculties and businesses across the University.
Compass is funded by grants from the Department of Industry, Immigration, Science, Research and Tertiary Education and donations to the University of Sydney.
