Helping more students


Making dreams happen

What happens when aspiring university graduates need extra help to break the mould shaped by difficult circumstances involving health, finances, family or culture?

At the University of the Sunshine Coast, they are welcomed and supported in a myriad of ways from scholarships to counselling, academic innovation to special facilities.

Backing these students are staff members and outside benefactors with the will and the resources to change lives.

As our anniversary year continues, we celebrate the dreams fulfilled and the people who have made a difference in the lives of many.
