If you’re in years 10-12, come and be inspired by addressing and resolving real world issues affecting our global society – building your skills in diplomacy, negotiation and public speaking. The event will allow you to learn about Arts & Social Sciences and Law degrees on offer at UNSW and a chance to explore the campus of one of Australia’s leading universities. Lunch will be provided.
