Dear Careers and Pathways Advisor and Year Coordinators

As you may be aware, in 2022 NIE partnered with Immerse Education to introduce the Academic Insights Program to students in Australia. The program was conducted with overwhelming success in early January this year. Based on the demand and client feedback, Immerse will be running the program again, but this time they have added more industries to choose from.

The 2024 program is scheduled to take place from the 3rd to the 13th of January 2024 at St Pauls's College at the University of Sydney (USYD). This time, you can choose from any of the seven streams on offer, which are: 

  • Medicine 
  • Psychology
  • Veterinary Studies
  • Engineering
  • International Relations 
  • Business Management 
  • Creative Writing

Please note: The spots for this program fill up fast as the numbers are strictly capped and we are unable to take tentative reservations. 

If you choose to, you can inform your students about the Academic Insights Programs by sharing the following information in your school newsletter, social media, or by forwarding this email to the relevant students and parents.

The National Institute of Education (NIE) Australia has partnered with Immerse Education to bring you the Academic Insights Program for Medicine, Psychology, Veterinary Studies, Engineering, International Relations, Business Management, and Creative Writing

The Academic Insights Program is designed to work as an instant accelerant to boost and fast-track the development of individual drive and motivation. The program will see students live and study at Australia’s top-ranked university, The University of Sydney. Just like university students, participants will attend lectures, tuitions, complete a research assignment, and of course, be involved in an array of social and cultural activities. As this is a residential program, students will be living at St Paul's College (University of Sydney) residential facility for the duration of the program. 

The academic components of the program will be facilitated by academics from Oxford and Cambridge Universities, who will fly in and stay for the 10-day duration of the program. In addition to all other activities, students will be receiving a Certificate of Completion, a detailed personalised performance review, and a personalised letter of recommendation, which they can use for applying to universities and various scholarship programs. 

Please note, that the number of places for this program is limited and strictly capped for each faculty, therefore, if you are interested, then please ENROL soon to avoid the disappointment of missing out. 

        Program Inclusions:

  • 10 nights' accommodation in a college at the University of Sydney
  • Breakfast, lunch, and dinner in College Hall
  • Accommodation in an individual bedroom
  • 35 hours of academic sessions from Oxford University and Cambridge University tutors
