Academically bright students come from all kinds of backgrounds.
It shouldn’t matter what your financial circumstances are, what school you went to, where you live, your race, what religion you follow, your gender or sexual identity, or whether you have a disability.
What does matter in university is your academic capability.
The Student Equity and Disabilities Unit (SEADU) aims to facilitate inclusive educational policy and practices across UNSW.
Our services, support and professional advice help break down the social, attitudinal and physical barriers that prevent students from diverse backgrounds and circumstances achieving a successful university education.

ALLY training day
Enrol online now on MYUNSW
ALLY training provides a whole day of free training around the issues that impact on LGBTQI community members and to create understanding and awareness of the issues experienced by people identifying as Lesbian gay Bi-sexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning or Intersex. ALLIES volunteer to undertake their role with the knowledge that they're making UNSW a better place to study and work for everybody.
ALLIES provide a safe place for LGBTQI students and staff by having access to appropriate resources and referral information. A trained ALLY can be found wherever the ALLY@UNSW logo is displayed in a work area.
Any staff member or student leader is welcome to apply to be an ALLY. The more the merrier! Building the network across UNSW will help raise awareness about issues, stamp out LGBTQ homophobia and help make UNSW a more inclusive place for all.
If you would like to become an ALLY@UNSW please sign up for one of our training days.
