Simply put, First Gen is a program that recognises the incredible achievement of those that are the first in their immediate family to attend higher education. It also understands that being the first brings with it some unique challenges for you and your family, and for this reason, we want to ensure you have the back up you need to feel confident and informed about your university journey. Be supported throughout your university journey by connecting with other First Gen students and staff, accessing tailored resources, and attending First Gen celebration events.
