A little bit more about UNSW

The main campus of UNSW (University of New South Wales) is in the Sydney suburb of Kensington. They have another campus for Arts and Design in Paddington, Sydney and the Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM) which is a postgraduate management and business school that is part of the UNSW Business School.

We have a range of UNSW reviews from students across topics such as Science, Health (including Medicine), Business & Commerce, Arts, Engineering, IT and Sciences.

Here's some advice and tips based on the UNSW students reviews we've received:
Make sure you research the degree and major you definitely want to do;
The library has a huge availability of study resources;
Speak to and ask Q's of the lecturers - they may have the ability to put you in touch with the industry;
Join Communities and student groups are a great way to network and make friends;
Study in groups can help;
Try to get a placement and gain experience while you study;
Make use of Uni resources like Moodle, library access & Blackboard;
Study hard in the first year or so when subjects are easy and high marks are easy to achieve;
Don't fall behind in your studies, it's hard to make up.

Positive, it was fun.
Negative I didn't learn useful transferable skills for the workplace

My advice to future students is: Spend time learning useful skills outside of class because class had none

Positives: The campus had fantastic facilities and great staff. The degree was challenging but offered adequate room for growth and exploration. I completed a psychology major and there were plenty of courses to choose from that complimented my interests.

Negatives: Not a lot of negatives however at time the class sizes felt very large. Depending on the type of student you are, this can have an impact on results and I felt as though I didn't do as well as I could have in my first year because there was little support.

My advice to future students is: Make sure you are a self starter and really dedicated to the course or you will struggle to keep up .

Positives: It’s so interactive, classes are small and personal. Everyone is so passionate and that really helps with learning

Negatives: Sometimes it’s a bit unorganised

My advice to future students is: Stay on top of your work. You don’t have to go to every lecture but you should catch up on it within a week or two or you’ll fall behind
