Your Teaching Career at UNSW

At UNSW, we recognise the current stage in your career and assist in your career development. There is no "normal" academic career path; staff can begin university teaching directly on graduating, or much later in their work life as experienced industry practitioners.

We understand that each academic is at a different point in the academic life cycle and we seek to provide support and guidance at each stage. We do this through workshops, seminars, online groups, mentoring or offering formal qualifications in learning and teaching. Find in the section of the website:
