Here's what our winners will be doing:

Four days chock full of adventure in one of the most gasp-out-loud gorgeous landscapes in the world.

A taste of life at UniSC, with exclusive behind-the-scenes access to many exhilarating experiences, with UniSC experts on hand at every turn to expand your educational horizons (phew – that's a lot of Es).

We’re pretty darn proud of our environmental focus, especially because our campus footprint sits across three UNESCO Biosphere reserves and the world heritage-listed K’gari (Fraser Island). What’s this mean? Well, it’s a fancy way of saying we live, work and play on some of the most beautiful, ecologically important and Insta-worthy natural settings on the planet. Consider this your invitation to win a one-of-a-kind experience to our beautiful home.

It's a real-life UniSC student experience

At UniSC students get to complete work integrated learning (WIL) as a part of almost every degree we offer - and we are so lucky to have campuses located within three beautiful UNESCO biospheres. In 2023, more than 500 of our students will attend field trips on the world heritage K’gari, the world’s largest sand island. At UniSC we also have some amazing partnerships such as the Dolphins NRL Team and the Sunshine Coast Lightning Suncorp Super Netball League Team where there are opportunities for students to complete placements.

Stop 1

Get VIP vibes with a behind-the-scenes tour at Suncorp Stadium, then enjoy the exhilaration of a Dolphins vs Rabbitohs NRL match (from a private corporate box!).

Visit the world-famous Australia Zoo (where crocs rule!) and encounter a rare breed: UniSC’s own superhero koala-saving researchers.

Stop 3

Enter the mind-bending, vivid world of virtual reality with HavenXR’s brainiacs at UniSC’s Sunshine Coast campus.

Stop 4

Life is just swell – with a surfing lesson in Noosa! Hang loose and ride the waves alongside a UniSC coastal erosion expert.

Discover stunning K’gari, the world’s largest sand island. Our outdoor education experts will be on hand to uncover some of the island’s unique natural wonders.
