University of New South Wales

Posted on Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Australia’s leading teaching and research institutions, was founded in 1949. The university is situated in Kensington, a suburb in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. University of New South Wales (UNSW) is a founding member of Universitas 21, an international network of leading research-intensive universities. The main UNSW campus is situated in Kensington, Sydney. Two of the University's faculties are situated in Paddington and in Canberra. UNSW currently has approximately 40,000 students studying in 600 undergraduate and postgraduate academic programs. Over 5,000 full-time staff work in its 76 schools, 69 research centres, 6 institutes, 4 teaching hospitals, 8 residential colleges and many administrative departments.

The University has nine faculties: arts and social sciences, Australian defence force academy, Australian school of business, built environment, college of fine arts, engineering, law, medicine and science.
Tuition fees for international students at UNSW are set at course (subject) level rather than at programme level. For example: Business and Science courses are more costly to provide than a course offered by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. This means that the tuition fees will reflect ones choice of courses.
Undergraduate fees range from A$ 425 - A$ 855 per year. Postgraduate fees range from A$ 390 - A$ 595 per year.
All applicants must provide evidence that their English language ability meets the minimum requirements for admission. Another important requirement for the under graduate degree is the best four academic subjects form the All India Senior Secondary School Certificate or completion of the Indian School Certificate (Grade 12).
Scholarship opportunities to support current and new students range from annual stipends, living allowances and tuition fee costs, to travel scholarships and supplements. There is a wide range of UNSW scholarships offered for international students, some of these are: 
  • Faculty of Engineering International Alumni Scholarship
  • Faculty of Engineering International Research Scholarship
  • Golden Jubilee Scholarships
  • UNSW International Student Scholarships
  • Asia Pacific Partnership (APP) Sponsorships

College accommodation is fully catered. Accommodation in the campus has its own selection process. It is helpful to note the timing of their application process and to work within it.
However, most Australian universities typically have limited or no on-campus accommodation for students. The majorities of students either live at home or stay in private accommodation. This private accommodation is often shared with other students and varies considerably in style, standard and cost. Local accommodation is generally more expensive and difficult to find at short notice, particularly in the peak periods of January and February.
