More about University of Sydney

University of Sydney believes that everyone should have the opportunity to enter higher education, so they visit primary and high schools across NSW to make sure students from underrepresented groups know why going to university is important and what pathways are available to them.

They believe racism in any form is abhorrent and must be countered, so they've partnered with the Australian Human Rights Commission's campaign Racism. It Stops with Me.
