Many students take pathway studies before commencing their full degree studies at UNSW Business School. We have a range of different pathway options to suit your background and needs.
UNSW College's Foundation Studies program was one of the first foundation programs in Australia and is still very popular with students seeking a prepartory foundation program ahead of beginning their undergraduate studies. Students will gain entry into the first year of their chosen Business School degree upon successful completion of the Foundation Studies program, provided they meet academic and English language requirements.
UNSW Business School accepts Group of Eight (GO8) University Foundation Year Programs for entry into a business undergraduate degree.
We have articulation pathway arrangements with recognised colleges, polytechnics and universities in Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam.
We are currently updating our international pathways documentation to align with our revised Bachelor of Commerce program. Updates will be added over the next few months.
Please note: Due to accreditation requirements set by the Actuaries Institute, no credits will be granted based on diploma study (sub-degree) toward the UNSW Bachelor of Actuarial Studies. Credits from an undergraduate (bachelor) degree may be considered on a case-by-case basis upon application.
