Helpful Hints

  • If you are applying for a scholarship based on financial hardship, please see our Scholarships page and submit the additional application and supporting documents in an email to gerric@unsw.edu.au. Please note that scholarship applications will only be accepted by email until the 16th November. Unfortunately after this date, regardless of situation, all scholarship funds will have been exhausted.

  • Your tickets will be reserved for 30 minutes in the Eventbrite portal during the registration process. Payment via Eventbrite is made by credit card at the time of registration.

  • You are only required to supply supporting selection criteria documentation (e.g. test results) if applying for a scholarship or if requested by GERRIC.

  • A new program application and payment is required for each student program that is offered in the year (i.e. January and July). We do not have the capacity to copy details from previous programs. This also applies for scholarship applications.

  • We will ONLY accept online applications for the January student program.

  • Workshops will only run if sufficient numbers of enrolments are received.
