Scholarships

All students who live outside the Sydney metropolitan area, undertaking an SSE unit, are eligible for a scholarship to cover the cost of travel and accommodation to Sydney

You will be reimbursed for any out of pocket costs for accommodation and return travel to the four day intensive in Sydney up to a prescribed limit based on your distance from Sydney. Eligible costs and reimbursement details are available in your letter of offer.

The amount you can get reimbursed will depend on your distance of your residential address from Sydney but covers reasonable costs. Full details are available in your letter of offer.

Everything you need should be in your letter of offer. If you can’t find it, make sure you check your junk. If you’re still looking for it, or have any specific questions, get in touch via ask@sse.edu.au

Studying with us

All our units are hosted on OpenLearning, a collaborative and intuitive online platform. Once you accept your offer, you will receive an invitation to create an account, including a username and password. If you already have an Openlearning account, it will automatically be added to your courses. Check your junk and if you still can’t find the email, contact us at ask@sse.edu.au

OpenLearning has extensive help and support materials on their website. If you’re still struggling, let us know at ask@sse.edu.au and we’ll do our best to help.

Our units are flexible to fit around your schedule online, combined with a packed four day intensive. It should add up to about the same as one of your units within your degree or program but can be done around your existing commitments.

We connect you with likeminded people from around the state and believe strongly in collaboration so be prepared to be available for group work.

A mindset, a new way of thinking, a whole new perspective on your career and the world. We’ll give you the skills you need to start your own venture or to contribute to innovation in whatever field your in. And you’ll learn heaps from the people you work with and meet along the way.

Apart from potentially life-changing experience and a whole new way of looking at the world?!

You’ll get a certificate of completion and you can put the achievement on your resume and LinkedIn. You’ll receive this certificate after attending the intensive, engaging online and attempting all assessment tasks.

You’ll also join our alumni community, opening up even more opportunities.

Attending the unit intensive

The four day face-to-face sessions are held at the SSE Campus in Ultimo, Sydney. Please make sure you are available from 09:00-17:30 each day for these four days. Check the individual unit pages to find out the relevant dates.

Yes. It’s not only the best bit of the whole course, where you’ll meet inspiring people and explore the startup ecosystem firsthand, it’s also the foundation of your learning experience.

Please get in touch as soon as possible if you are unable to attend one or more days of the intensive, via ask@sse.edu.au. We understand life gets in the way sometimes and will take every reasonable step we can to make it work.

Just your laptop, a positive attitude and willingness to co-create, experiment and play. There’ll be a few surprises for you as well!

You bet! We like to take care of you when you come to SSE. A healthy and delicious morning tea and lunch is provided each day. We can cater to any dietary requirements so please just let us know in advance.

Just what you feel comfortable in or what you normally wear to class.

No worries – please let us know as soon as possible. Just send us an email to ask@sse.edu.au.

Visiting our campus

We’re just a 10-minute walk from Central station – you can walk through UTS or the Goods Line. Let Google Maps do the hard work and find us at Building J, 651 – 731 Harris Street Ultimo NSW 2007. Here’s a map to help you.

Unfortunately there is no parking on campus, although you can drop people off at the building. Your best bet is on Mary Ann Street or the surrounding side streets. Paid parking is available at the Thomas Street Car Park (part of UTS) or at the Novotel Sydney.

Yes, access is available on Thomas Street and Mary Ann Street. We have an accessible bathroom on Level 1 (accessed via lift). If you have any accessibility needs or questions, please email info@sse.edu.au and we’ll be happy to help.

For security reasons, the gates to our campus are closed late and night and on weekends. You can always access the campus via the security games on Mary Ann St. Just let them know you’re here for a Sydney School of Entrepreneurship activity.
