Graduate Advantage Program

The Graduate Advantage Program (GAP) partners with some of Australia’s leading companies to deliver an intense and unique professional development program for students, designed to give you the “graduate advantage” and to set you apart with employers. GAP will help participants develop personal and professional skills, give them a better understanding of the business world and has the potential to boost employability.


GAP is delivered in an intense one week format at the end of summer break. The program will take place at the industry partner's offices primarily located around the Sydney CBD and UNSW. Final times and locations of the GAP sessions will only be shared with successful students selected for GAP.
