Top performing university surrounded by beautiful oceanside communities

University of New South Wales (UNSW) is a large and modern campus that caters to more than 50,000 high-achieving students from 120 countries. Established in 1949, it is ranked among the top 60 universities in the world, renowned for the quality of its graduates and its world-class research.

UNSW enjoys an excellent reputation for the provision of intellectually challenging and engaging courses in commerce and economics and all strands of engineering. Computer science is also strong, as well as business (with an AACSB accredited Business School), and there are a substantial number of courses that focus on Australia. You can also choose to participate in an Arcadia+ internship to round out your experience!

UNSW is located in the Sydney suburbs, within a couple of miles of oceanside communities like Coogee Beach and Bondi Beach. It provides students with a wonderful mix of urban life and the outdoor environment for which Australia is so well-known.

I heard a lot inside the classroom, but I think it came mostly from living in New South Wales and being surrounded by Australians. ”
