Notes

  • Standard university teaching hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 9pm. If you are enrolled in a class taught in non-standard hours or format (e.g. on weekends or in intensive format), you should refer to the teaching start and end dates on your myUNSW class timetable (or as advised by your course convenor) as these may differ from the standard calendar dates listed above.
  • What are T1, T2A, U1B etc? Some of the dates on this page include abbreviations (such as T1, T2, U1) that refer to specific periods of teaching in each semester. These abbreviations are explained on the Teaching Periods page.
