Learn to swim program

Can't swim? Want to learn some basic water safety skills?


Water and beach culture are part of the Australian experience, but what if you didn’t grow up here, and/or didn’t the opportunity to learn these skills, does that preclude you from getting involved – NOT AT ALL! 

UNSW Health Promotion Unit in partnership with Medibank, the UNSW Fitness & Aquatic Centre and Coogee Surf Life Saving Club have designed a water and beach safety program to keep you safe and teach you some basic water skills. 


“The return of the programme over the summer helped us feel more connected to the university, brought us back as a community and allowed us to enjoy the summer, and to get active, after a long period of isolation”- Previous Student, January 2021
