Veterans' Engagement and Education Program


Australian Defence Force

First Responders

Immediate Family

UniSA recognises that your commitment to service, deployments and other related responsibilities can cause unavoidable disruption to your study plans.

Whether you are continuing your service or transitioning to civilian life, we offer personalised study support to put you on the path to success. Through VEEP, our Veterans’ Engagement and Education Program, we help you to balance your study with work and family commitments, and to respond to some of the unique challenges that may arise as a result of your service.

This program is available to veterans, current serving and ex-serving Australian Defence Force members, including reservists, first responders, and immediate family members.

By registering in VEEP, enrolled students will benefit from access to a defence community within UniSA, and personalised support.
