UniSA offers an outstanding package of support services for elite athletes and performing artists. We want to do all we can to help you succeed in both your education and your sporting or performing career.
Before you apply to study at UniSA, we are available to discuss your study options, entry requirements, credit and anything else that may impact on your program choice. Contact us to arrange your pre-application discussion.
A range of study options
UniSA's range of flexible study options allows you to study at your own pace and in your preferred environment. Choose from full-time or part-time study, join us on campus, or study off-campus from wherever you are in the world. You can also mix and match these options, studying some courses on-campus and others externally.
The options available vary between programs, so visit the program information page
for each program you are considering to explore your options.
Advice and guidance
At any stage of your life as an elite athlete or performing artist at UniSA you can come to us for advice and guidance. Whether it’s planning your timetable around your performance or competition commitments, working out how and when to sit your exams, or exploring your study options, we’re here to help.
Flexibility and assistance
We understand your sporting and performance commitments can make it hard for you to meet attendance requirements for classes, placements and exams. That’s why at UniSA we have flexibility and special circumstances provisions for elite athletes and performing artists built into our policies.
We will support you in negotiating the flexibility you need when it comes to attendance, taking leave, cross-institutional study, or meeting other academic requirements. The one area we won’t be flexible in is maintaining the quality of your education.
At UniSA we like to cheer our elite athletes and elite performing artists on. We recognise the value of what you’re doing and will act as an advocate for you in the University environment. This means everything from considering our policies with you in mind to negotiating with others on your behalf.
Full range of other student services
All of this is on top of our full range of general student services, including counselling, childcare, disability services, accommodation assistance, learning and teaching support, and career services. Find out more at Student services.
