Year 12 is a time of great uncertainty, curiosity and discovery. As year 12 students approach the final chapters of their high school life they must decide what career path they want to pursue. As university students, we understand these difficulties as we have been in those exact shoes. This is where the HSC and Beyond program comes in.
VSA NSW is a not-for-profit organisation comprising of nearly 2,000 students spanning five different universities, including UNSW, USyd, UTS, UWS, and Macq. Our members aspire to develop their skillsets and networks, both professionally and on a personal level, by engaging in social participation through community, cultural, leadership, and social activities.
VSA NSW encourages its pool of members to be culturally diverse. By connecting students from a variety of ethnic backgrounds who share an appreciation of the Vietnamese culture, it allows for a heightened understanding of the similarities and appreciation and differences between diverse cultures.
We have a number of specialised portfolios designed to advance our organisational objectives and tailor our services to enrich our members.
In NSW, the State Committee oversees the University VSA branches that operate independently to deliver a tailored experience to their respective members.
“VSA will always impact my sense of self and my perspective on life to see that in celebrating our differences as people, we are able to discover our strengths.”
“VSA has helped me be a better leader by giving me the opportunity to nurture and watch those around me grow and, in turn, help me grow as a person.”
“VSA gives me the rare opportunity to lead and guide my peers toward achieving their goals, while they support me in my own endeavours.”
