These 2-5 day trips are conducted with representatives from Adelaide and Flinders universities, and are a chance for the team to directly communicate with prospective students. Almost all of rural SA is covered, as well as Darwin, Alice Springs, Broken Hill and some country areas of Victoria.
Every year, the Officers host a Career counsellor information session where counsellors are invited to the University to hear about new programs, receive updates and discuss issues with academics.
Part of the Student liaison team's role is to visit schools to promote UniSA programs and courses. The team aims to help schools be as informed as possible by providing the latest information on programs, courses and other offerings.
