About the University

The University of New South Wales (UNSW) is a public university located in Kensington, Australia, approximately 4 miles south of Sydney’s central business district and 3 miles west of Bondi Beach. UNSW, established in 1949, is the founding member of the Group of Eight, a coalition of Australian research-intensive universities, and is ranked among the top 60 universities in the world. The UNSW Faculty of Engineering welcomes a large number of international students every year. More than 25% of their undergraduate students and nearly 50% of their postgraduate students come from overseas. 

You can read the UNSW Exchange Guide and the UNSW Fact Sheet for more information. 

About the Location

Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales and the most populous city in Australia. Of the 4.4 million people who call Sydney home, 40% are born overseas, making Sydney one of the most multicultural cities in the world. Sydney’s sprawling natural harbor, breathtaking shorelines, and excellent year round climate have earned Sydney the reputation for being one of the most attractive and livable cities in the world. With a lively business district, a booming art and culture scene, and many islands and parks, there is never a shortage of things to do and see for tourists and residents alike. Whether you enjoy surfing, visiting world famous botanical gardens, taking in an opera, or whale watching, you will find it in Sydney. Click here, for more information.
