Information for Students

Arrangements for Students

T1 2021 is looking more and more like the vibrant campus experience we enjoyed before COVID-19. The Australian and NSW public health efforts as well as UNSW safety measures mean that your experience on campus can be vibrant, social, lively and safe. Your programs and faculties are working hard to ensure there are more on-campus classes in T1 2021 and we are excited to welcome more of you back starting with O-Week in February. Many of your courses will offer in-person and online classes so you can choose the options that will suit you best.

All lectures in Term 1, 2021 will be online. However, many other classes such as tutorials and practicals are being offered face-to-face. Online provisions will be made for those students unable to attend. In some cases, it may be necessary to direct students to alternative courses so they can continue to progress with their degrees. You can find all current courses offerings in the UNSW class timetable. Read our Safe Return to Campus Guidance  and FAQs for further information. 

Yes. Commencing international students can start their UNSW studies online. In most cases you will find your core compulsory courses are offered online and you will have a choice of elective options. The Term 1 2021 timetable is now available. However, there are some programs with components that cannot currently be completed remotely. This may be due to the need for specialist equipment or in some cases because of the requirements of external accrediting organisations. If you are studying one of the programs listed below and you are not able to study onshore, your graduation may be delayed. If you would like further information about how your studies may be impacted, contact the Nucleus: Student Hub

If you participate by remote means and  need to access online teaching material, you can visit the IT website  or the transitioning to online learning website for more information on what programs to use and how to get set up for remote study. The IT website also hosts tips on how to set yourself up for online success.

If you do not have the technology needed to complete your classes online please contact the UNSW student and staff hotline  +61 2 9385 8500

  • You must participate in your class at the specified time (Australian Eastern Standard Time – AEST) unless your Course Authority has advised that a class is not compulsory or has been recorded.  

  • Special Consideration will not be awarded on the grounds that you are in different time zone. 

Recognition of online studies by the Chinese Government

Chinese Government officials have confirmed that UNSW online courses will be recognised by the Chinese Service Center for Scholarly Exchange (CSCSE) if a student's study plan has been disrupted by COVID-19 and associated travel restrictions.

Recognition of online studies by the Indian Government

The Indian Ministry of Human Resources Development is yet to make a final decision on recognition of online studies via foreign higher education providers. The Australian Government is continuing to make representations to their Indian counterparts and the UNSW India Centre is similarly making representations to relevant agencies in New Delhi.

We strongly recommend you do not leave the country if you intend to complete your degree in Australia. We have had students rejected for travel exemptions to return to Australia if they left voluntarily, even if they were part of an exempt category. This is particularly important if your program has components that cannot currently be completed remotely as it may result in delaying graduation.

In all cases we strongly suggest you contact your faculty for program advice at The Nucleus: Student Hub before you make any plans to leave the country.

Affected students may defer or take program leave until Term 2 2021 depending on the availability of relevant programs and subjects. 

You may choose to defer the start of your study until the next available intake. For many programs this will be Term 2, 2021. 

Your COE will be cancelled and you will need to accept your new offer. Once you accept your new offer a new COE will be issued. 

You need both a valid COE and visa to enter Australia. Your student visa should stay in place.

Please check the Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) system for your visa end date, updated details and conditions.

Program leave is for continuing students.  

Program leave will be granted as compassionate and compelling so there should be no impact on your student visa. Your current Confirmation of Enrolment (COE) will be cancelled but a new one will be issued straight away. You can check your visa status through Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO).  

We recommend that you also notify the Department of Home Affairs.

If you have questions about program leave and your COE and visa, please emailinternational.student@unsw.edu.au

The Class Timetable will be updated if a course is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. If you are registered for that class you will be notified automatically.

In response to COVID-19, UNSW has worked to develop appropriate processes and support for Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Placements to be conducted remotely in a work at home capacity or offshore in certain locations.

In some circumstance, however, it may not currently be possible for students located offshore to complete their WIL placements. This may be due to the need for appropriate clinical placements, adequate insurance cover or in some cases because an external accrediting organisation requires that the placement takes place in Australia. If you are studying, or intend to study, one of the programs listed below that contain a compulsory WIL placement then your progression or graduation may be delayed if are required to complete you WIL placement in Australia at a later date.

For more information about how the WIL is being managed during COVID-19 please contact wil@unsw.edu.au

Information for Future Students

While this is an uncertain time for us all, UNSW remains operational and dedicated to providing a world-class education for all our students.

We’ve transitioned our courses to online teaching and have migrated as many aspects of our campus community as possible into the virtual space.

Our plan is for all lectures to remain online for Term 1, 2021. Many other classes such as tutorials and practicals are being offered face-to-face with online provisions wherever possible being made for students who are unable to attend.

As a potential applicant or offer holder, this means you can commence your studies with us no matter where you are in the world and then join us on campus again when you are able to do so.

Take advantage of this time to get a head start on your studies – apply or accept your offer today.

We remain committed to enabling the best possible educational experience the circumstances allow and look forward to welcoming you into our amazing community soon.

HSC exams are still going ahead as confirmed by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). The Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) have also confirmed that the ATAR will be calculated as usual this year. UNSW will continue to admit students on the basis of their ATAR. UNSW provides a range of alternative admission pathways that students should consider if they believe that they may not achieve the ATAR for their dream degree. We will endeavor to continue providing support for students and parents over the coming months and should any changes be made to our admission requirements these will be communicated prior to the admissions period.

To recognise the hard work and resilience of students as well as to maximise the educational opportunities available for them, UNSW has introduced a number of admissions changes for our 2021 intake which you may be eligible for: 

  • UNSW will honour all published 2021 Guaranteed Entry (GE) ATAR ranks 
  • We want to maximise opportunities for students who preference UNSW and expect to make many offers to students who are within 5 ATAR points of the Guaranteed Entry (GE) ATAR rank in programs where we have capacity. This will occur via our three adjustment factor schemes: HSC Plus; Elite Athletes, Performers and Leaders Scheme; and the Educational Access Scheme (EAS). 
  • We have increased the maximum number of adjustment factors students can receive in total across all of our adjustment factor schemes to 12 points. 
  • We have expanded the range of adjustment factors offered through HSC Plus to recognise strong performance in Maths and English for all programs eligible under this scheme. 
  • The Guaranteed Entry (GE) rank for most of our Bachelor of Engineering degrees has been adjusted from 93 to 91 
  • We will recognise three additional types of disadvantage through the Educational Access Scheme (EAS) for those affected by natural disasters (N01D) and the financial impacts of COVID-19 (F01K and F01S)  

For more information on these changes and to find out if you may be eligible, chat with one of our friendly Future Student Advisers.  

We understand many have been affected by the COVID-19 on different levels. In response to this, UAC has announced new Educational Access Scheme (EAS) disadvantage categories. Please visit the UAC website for more information on EAS categories of disadvantage and required documents.

Other adjustment factor schemes, such as HSC Plus, Gateway Scheme and Elite Athlete, Performers and Leaders program (EAPL) are still running so please review these as they may be relevant to you depending on what degree(s) you are applying for.

UNSW will be updating our EAPL Guide in the future to note changes in any changes in the assessment for activities that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

A popular question has been in regard to an inability to complete the Gold Award in the Duke of Edinburgh. It has been approved that we will now be awarding 2 points for students who have completed the Silver Award and are currently taking the Gold Award but have been unable to finish this level due to COVID-19. Additionally, you may also be eligible for these points if you have completed 3 sections (Physical Recreation, Skills and Voluntary Service) of the Gold Award but could not complete the Gold Award in 2020 due to COVID19. In your EAPL application you will need to submit a written statement outlining how COVID-19 has impacted your ability to complete the activities involved in the Gold Award and provide supporting documentation. For more information and to apply for the EAPL Scheme, visit the EAPL website.
