Winter School is coming
Whether you want to catch up on a unit of study, give yourself a lighter load next semester, or just can’t stand being off campus for a month, there are plenty of good reasons to apply for Winter School. With fewer people around, you might even get away with wearing your Ugg boots to class. Register by 19 June.
We’re bringing TEDxSydney to Manning Bar with a free livestream from 11am to 6pm next Friday 16 June. Drop in for an illuminating study break, and don’t forget to follow us on social for our coverage on the day, including an exclusive Facebook live interview with Sydney Uni alumna and TEDx speaker Jordan Raskopoulos, of Axis of Awesome fame.

Also watch out for Snapchat footage from our student insider and competition winner Alice Du who'll be attending the event at the ICC.
