UNSW is moving to a new academic calendar from 2019

UNSW is moving to a new academic calendar model from 2019, consisting of three normal terms each with ten weeks teaching, and an optional five-week summer term. The new academic calendar is called UNSW3+.

UNSW3+ will offer:

  • Integration of opportunities into the UNSW experience, better preparing students for the work environment.
  • Alignment with Northern Hemisphere university calendars, creating flexibility for more global experiences.
  • Flexibility to spread study load over the course of the year.
  • More time in each term to devote to each course, improving depth of understanding.
  • The ability for UNSW to grow over the next ten years.
  • A more vibrant campus life through greater optimisation of the facilities.
