UNSW Hero Programs

UNSW Hero Programs

Unlock your leadership potential, develop professional skills, and expand your professional networks by participating in a range of Hero program offerings.

The UNSW Hero Programs (UNSW Heroes) is a flagship co-curricular initiative preparing students for the future of work. The themes for our three Hero programs are leadership development, professional development, and innovation learning. Our programs draw on expertise from UNSW staff, industry thought leaders, emerging professionals, and alumni, who share their knowledge and insights to foster a culture of professional opportunity and excellence.

All programs are eligible for AHEGS recognition, free of charge, and available to all UNSW students.
