New Student Enrolment Guide


Congratulations on your offer and welcome to UNSW Science!

This enrolment guide contains important information to help you select your courses and enrol in your Science degree at UNSW.

The video below explains some of the key concepts and resources available, and there’s more information below.

 

Step 1: Accept your offer


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

Instructions on how to accept were included with your offer letter, but if you need help see:
www.unsw.edu.au/gettingstarted/accepting-your-offer

 

Step 2: Understand your degree and choose your courses


Each degree at UNSW is slightly different, and the courses (units) you take depends on your degree, the types of science that interest you, and when courses are available.

You should have received a link to your personalised offer page which will help you to plan your enrolment. However, the links below provide more detailed information about all of our science degrees, and some tips on how to choose the best courses:

Step 3: Enrol in your courses 


After you’ve decided what courses you want to take, you can enrol for the year via myUNSW

Remember: a full-time study load from 2019 is 3 x 6 UoC courses per term (18 UoC), and a total of 8 courses (48 UoC) across the year, which means one term per year of your choice can have a ligher load with just 2 courses (12 UoC). However, students have the option to enrol in 9 courses in a year (3 per term) if they want to fast-track their degree. 

To check course availability for next year, go to: http://www.student3plus.unsw.edu.au/The official finalised timetable for 2019 will be available by the end of September. 

 

Step 4: Create a Timetable 

 

The final step is to register for your classes for the upcoming term via myUNSW. Once this has been completed, you will be able to view your timetable for the term.

You can check all the available class times for each course on the online timetable
