Young Leaders Program

In 2021, we will not be offering Study Tours.
Instead we recommend you consider our current English, Foundation Studies and Diploma course options. Thank you for your interest in UNSW Global, we appreciate your patience whilst we update our website.

The Young Leaders Program is aimed at high school students aged 16 or older. It is delivered in a vibrant, dynamic learning environment that motivates out-of-box thinking and empowers cross-cultural awareness; essential attributes for young global citizens in the 21st century.


In the spirit of the UNSW tradition of academic innovation and excellence, the Young Leaders Program offers young learners a specially designed taster of UNSW-style learning and also provides them with opportunities to explore academic pathways for future career options.


Students who enrol in a UNSW Diploma or Foundation Studies Program (excluding Transition) within 12 months of completing the Young Leaders Program will be awarded a scholarship valued at $1,000.
