New Student Enrolment Guide

 

Congratulations on your offer and welcome to UNSW Science!

This enrolment guide has been created to help you select your subjects and enrol in your first semester.

The enrolment process has a few steps to it, and can take time, so we strongly recommend new students read the information below before attempting to enrol via myUNSW.

 

Step 1: Accept your offer


All new students must accept their offer before they can enrol in classes.

Instructions on how to accept were included with your offer letter, but if you need help see:

Step 3: Create a Timetable and Enrol


After you’ve decided what courses you want to take this semester, the final step is create a timetable and enrol via myUNSW.

Remember: A full-time study load is 4 x 6 UoC courses per semester; a total of 24 UoC.

To see check when a courses is offered, go to: http://www.timetable.unsw.edu.au/current/subjectSearch.html

Helpful tip: Rectangles is an online resource that can help students create a weekly timetable. It’s important to remember that Rectangles does not update regularly (e.g. it may not show if a class is full), and it does not recognise if certain classes have reservations or enrolment blocks (that can prevent students from enrolling in a particular class on certain days/times).
