Water Safety Program

The Water Safety Program is a FREE aquatics education initiative available to University of Melbourne students.

The program was created for students who have not previously had the opportunity to learn to swim, lack water confidence or would like to develop survival and basic formal swimming stroke knowledge and technique.

Over a 10-week period, consisting of one 45-minute lesson per week, students will be taught the necessary water safety, stroke and survival skills for safe and enjoyable participation in water-based social activities at the pool and beach.

Being a low impact, full-body workout, swimming also has many physical and mental health benefits including increased wellbeing.

What’s included?

  • Tailored swim program provided by Austswim qualified staff
  • MU Sport and University of Melbourne branded swimming goggles and cap
  • Unlimited pool access outside lesson times to practice newly learnt skills
  • Beach safety education seminar
  • Practical beach excursion
