The UNE International Student Ambassador Program is an extracurricular program open to both domestic and international on-campus students. Student Ambassadors represent UNE to current, new, prospective students and to the wider Armidale community. Through this program, we hope to enhance the on-campus student experience by building relationships between on-campus International and Domestic students. Student Ambassadors not only have the chance to gain valuable professional skills in planning and organisation, leadership, public speaking and teamwork but also be awarded with up to $1,000.

Recently, UNESA opened a survey for students to complete regarding the trimester system. 1154 students responded - with 52% of the replies being external students, and 48% internal. Most respondents belonged to the undergraduate cohort, with all the schools being represented.

For those of us that enjoy neo-gothic Victorian era Steampunk romance fiction (quite a mouthful I know), Gail Carriger has become something of a literary saviour. In 2009, she debuted the first in her inaugural series of novels, Soulless and since it hit shelves, Carriger has become an unstoppable force within the realm of Steampunk fiction.
