About the Program

Study at University of New South Wales (UNSW), one of the leading research and innovative universities in the world, known for its commitment to social justice, diversity, and high quality education with a global impact. Choose from a wide range of courses across dozens of disciplines, including STEM, law, computer science, social sciences, business, and liberal arts, and take classes alongside local and international students from a variety of different backgrounds. There's no doubt that at UNSW you'll find courses that fulfill your major requirements or match your academic and personal interests.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

UNSW operates on a 1+3 model. In the first 4-weeks of the semester you'll take an intensive course, specifically designed for study abroad students. Then you'll continue the semester by taking 3 UNSW courses from the full catalog of courses. Courses are offered in a broad range of disciplines, with particular academic strengths in STEM, computer science, business, language and linguistics, social justice, policy, and governance. 

UNSW utilizes credit points and represent a measure of the student’s workload by subject. Most subjects at UTS are 6 credit points each, which equals 4 credits in the U.S. semester system. Academic class contact hours range depending on the course but are typically 4-5 hours/class per week (depending on structure) and another four hours for work outside of classroom. You may earn 16 credits per semester. 

Due to differences in the Australian higher education system, there is no standard for the number of days a week a UNSW course may meet. Class meeting times vary across departments and subject areas.

The academic structure below lists a small sample of subject areas available at UNSW. You will have access to introductory, intermediate and advanced courses in a wide range of courses in the fields of engineering, information technology, creative intelligence and innovation, the sciences, and much more. See below for information how to access the UNSW website for a full list of courses.

Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

A transcript from UNSW is awarded upon successful completion of the program.
