Short Programs and 3+

Short Programs and 3+

Published: 7 February 2019

The new academic calendar 3+ will create additional possibilities for students to undertake overseas short programs in the mid-year period (Northern hemisphere summer) as part of their degree.

The dates of these programs will fall under Term 2 at UNSW.

With the right planning, students can participate in these excellent opportunities without delaying progression and possibly whilst maintaining full time student status.

If you are interested in attending a short program overseas this year (or beyond), please make a time to speak with your faculty’s Student Centre about your progression and enrolment options.

In order to receive academic credit for the short program (through Cross-Institutional Study) you need the written approval of your faculty/school before you attend the program, so please bring the details of the program/s you are interested in applying for when you speak with the Student Centre for them to assess.
