UNSW is a founding member of the Group of Eight, a coalition of Australia's leading research-intensive universities, and of the prestigious international network Universities 21. With more than 50,000 students from over 120 countries, it is one of Australia's most cosmopolitan universities and is located seven kilometers from the center of Sydney.

As a study abroad student, you can study almost any course at UNSW as long as you have the prerequisite knowledge and meet all of the necessary requirements. It is also possible to undertake a supervised internship placement or volunteering opportunity to gain industry experience to support the knowledge gained through your studies.

Living in Sydney

Sydney was established in the 1780s – the first European settlement in Australia. Since then, the city has expanded eastward to the coast and westward to the Blue Mountains. It now stretches 55 kilometers from east to west, and 60 kilometers from north to south.

Sydney is one of the world's most highly rated cities in terms of quality of life. It was ranked number 10 by the international consulting firm, Mercer, in 2010. It was ranked first in the Asia Pacific by the IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook 2007. It was voted 'world's best city' by readers of Travel & Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler magazines.
