If you are an International student studying on a student visa you must satisfy certain conditions such as completing studies within the time frames set out in your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).
In 2019, under UNSW3+:
Please note international students who fail to meet their visa conditions, may have their visa cancelled.
A student visa allows you to work up to 40 hours per fortnight while your program is in session and unrestricted hours during the university break periods. It is important to note that you are not permitted to work until you have commenced your studies. No work limits apply if you are studying a Masters by research or Doctorate course in Australia.
In 2019, the academic calendar dates will change, and it is important that International students adhere to these new dates and working restrictions. You can see the 2019 academic calendar dates here.
There will be two Undergraduate admission intakes per year – Term 1 and Term 3.
Some faculties will offer Postgraduate admission in Term 2, but it will be based on demand.
The required units of credit to complete a degree at UNSW will not change under the UNSW3+ calendar, which means students can expect their estimated fees for their degree to remain accurate. Fees will continue to be charged based on enrolment in a given term, which will allow students to spread their course load across three terms.
International students are charged a Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) in addition to their tuition fees, as stipulated on their letter of offer. It is expected the capped amount set by the Australian Government annually will be spread evenly across the 3+ term model.
From 2019, graduation ceremonies will happen three times per year, with less time to wait between completing your studies and attending your graduation ceremony.
