The organisations that are integral to our work

Our vision of enabling underrepresented students to access higher education would not be possible without the in-community support of our partners.

Our partners are integral to what we do, giving us the opportunity to extend and sustain our reach and engagement with students, schools and their families.


The Smith Family

The Smith Family’s Learning for Life program provides students with academic coaching and wrap around family support to help them complete their high school journeys and transition to University.  The University of Sydney has been working with The Smith family since 2004 and each year we have collectively supported a number of Learning for Life recipeints to access the University of Sydney.

Education and Training Out West

Dubbo-based ETOW supports regional students to complete their high school studies and transition into higher education, especially those who have taken a gap year and/or have become disengaged from learning. The partnership allows us to connect with and support regional students who have identified a desire to enrol at the  University of Syndey, through the provision of residential on-campus experiences and workshops that focus on areas including literacy, academic writing and team building.


Country Education Foundation
The Country Education Foundation supports students in regional, remote and rural Australia achieve their dreams through supported access to further education, training and jobs.


The Seymour Centre

Based on the University of Sydney campus, Seymour’s arts education program strives to build engagement through theatre that reveal and investigate contemporary discourses. Students can access live performances of key texts that are part of the K-12 Curriculum and enhance their understanding of theatre and acquire cultural capital.
