You may know that your child attends one of 30 schools that the University of Sydney partners with through Compass. We work with your school to bring the resources of the University into the classroom.

Your child and Compass

Students involved in Compass will enjoy a range of exciting and educational activities and projects in their schools and at the University of Sydney, where they will meet and interact with the University's staff and students. They will know who we are (we are the smiling faces in the yellow t-shirts)!

You and Compass

We know you have an enormous influence on the decisions your child will make about his or her education and career. Your perceptions and experiences of education and work have a real impact on your child from an early age.

Some parents feel that higher education is too expensive or impractical. They may also believe that it can be too hard to get into university - or just find the whole area too intimidating and confusing.

That is why the University of Sydney invites you to get to know us firsthand. You can meet our staff and students by participating in a wide range of activities.

For more information on going to university and your child's future please download our parent's booklet (PDF).
