South Australia’s three universities combined with the Office of the Guardian again this year to update a brochure to encourage young people under, or recently under, guardianship to think about going to university.
The brochure describes a range of options for uni entry, ways of funding study, the variety of courses available and some real-life stories of young people under guardianship who have made the journey themselves.
The brochure is targeted to young people in their later years at high school and recent school leavers as well as the teachers, school counsellors and carers who can encourage and support them.
You can order copies of the brochure from the materials page of this site and it will also be distributed to DECS school counsellors, through universities and through Families SA social workers. You can also view a version of the brochure in PDF.
