We know what makes students tick

Sharing The UniSmart Story

Since 1991 we have been communicating with students in a way that engages, excites and informs them.  We are as good at communicating with adult audiences, all be it in a different tone and with a different message.  We welcome opportunities to share the UniSmart story and to talk about our experience in making a positive difference to young adults starting their university studies.  The location, campus and culture may be different, but the issues are the same.

For information, comment or engagement, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We are happy to participate in forums that address student welfare and to comment on factors that influence and impact positive student outcomes.
