FAQs

  • The simple answer is yes. Depending on the degree you study, you may also be required to complete practical study units to finish your program. 

    As a university that produces the most employable graduates in the world, UNSW offers plenty of internship and work placement opportunities internally or externally in collaboration with our industry partners in Australia and globally.

    Work Integrated Learning (WIL) at UNSW enables our students to gain real-world work experience while earning credits for their degree. WIL is available in all the six UNSW Faculties with plenty of overseas placement opportunities via UNSW Study Abroad and Exchange Office. That means you can get hands-on work experience while you study remotely.  

  • It all depends on the program you want to study, whether it’s undergraduate or postgraduate, or whether it’s a coursework degree or research degree. Normally, you need to meet both academic entry requirements and English language entry requirements to get an offer. However, some programs may have additional selection criteria.

    Our dedicated degree page is the ultimate tool for you to find the perfect UNSW degree you want to study and everything you need to know before you apply.

    Do you know UNSW accepts secondary qualifications of certain overseas countries? Simply switch the country that you obtained a secondary qualification in the “Entry requirements” section of the degree you want to apply on the degree page. Our website will let you know if you are eligible to apply via international direct entry. We encourage you to contact us for more information on what qualifications you may need to meet entry.

  • Similar to other entry requirements you need to meet, the English language requirements vary depending on the program. You can find the exact English language requirements of the program you are interested in on our degree page

    Taking English language tests is not the only way to meet our requirements. You may be eligible to apply for a waiver of English language requirements if you meet certain criteria listed on our website.  Or you may choose to complete English courses at UNSW Global before you start studying with us. 

  • Admissions to UNSW are assessed by our professional staff manually on a case-by-case basis. In the case that your secondary qualification is not accepted by us, we suggest that you contact us for personalised advice. 

    Alternatively, you may want to explore our pathway programs offered by UNSW Global, including foundation, diploma and English courses – all available online. The pathway programs provide seamless transitions to UNSW Sydney with guaranteed spot of your preferred degree if you meet the required GPA and English requirements upon completion. Don’t delay your study plan and be prepared from today! 

  • Yes, we do – but only for A Levels or the IB Diploma results. The total predicted aggregate must be two points higher than the total final aggregate required for admission.

    Results must be printed on official school letterhead and include the institution stamp and signature of the Principal, Registrar or Academic Director. Results should be dated after 1 January for entry in Term 3 (September intake), and after 1 June for Term 1 (February intake). 

    You may find more on our international website and you are encouraged to reach out to us to get personalised advice.

  • As an international student, you can access plenty of scholarship opportunities at UNSW – some are international-student-exclusive!
