Will there still be internships available this year?

We are currently exploring these possibilities; a lot of workplaces have also transitioned to online working environments and it makes it difficult to give definitive answers as much of this space has changed. Please keep in contact with your course convenors and discipline directors through Moodle for updates on internships available to you. Check out the UNSW Law website’s internship page for more information and current internships available.

Returning to campus

When will face-to-face teaching resume? 

All Term 3 courses are available online. Information on when courses will resume face-to-face will be provided in due course. In the meantime, a broad outline of our phased approach to the resumption of on-campus learning and activity is here.


Is the UNSW Campus closed for the remainder of 2020?

At this stage we don’t know precisely when UNSW campuses will be fully open again. We want to see you on campus as soon as possible however we will only do so when it is as safe as possible, UNSW will continue to follow health advice from the State and Federal Government.


If courses do resume face-to-face before the end of the year, will they continue online for international students who cannot return?

Yes, we have committed to making sure that all students are able to continue to study with us until everyone is able to return to campus safely. If we can transition back to face-to-face teaching we will make sure there is a hybrid version available for as long as necessary with a mixture of face-to-face and online learning until all our of students are able to come back to campus.

Clubs and societies

How can I get to know other students in a social way online?
