University of New South Wales - The Australian School of Business


UNSW, was founded in 1949 and is one of the top universities in Australia. It is a public university with a population of over 40,000 students. The Australian School of Business is the top business school in Australia. UNSW is a member of the prestigious "Group of 8." UNSW is located 7 kilometers from the center of Sydney in the suburb of Kensington.

Sydney has a population of 4.5 million in its metropolitan area, making it the largest and most populous city in Australia. It is famous for its beaches and the Sydney Opera House.

Student Life 

UNSW is home to more than 200 clubs and societies. The University Union, in the heart of campus, houses many of these clubs. The Sports and Recreation Centre at UNSW includes a swimming pool, basketball courts, gymnasiums, archery, and weight rooms. You can join an intramural team or one of the university's 39 sports clubs.

UNSW has its own university district surrounding the campus with interesting shops, restaurants, and bars. University students enjoy going to Esme's Deli for French pastries or spending time at The Eatery, a local student hangout. You also have the option of going into the city for shopping and entertainment. Shopping in downtown Sydney is excellent and the nightlife in the city is second to none. Days at the beach are also something to plan, as several of Sydney's most popular swimming and surfing beaches are near UNSW.

On-campus housing in the UNSW residential colleges is extremely competitive and not guaranteed. However, students may apply for accommodation in apartments throught the UNSW Student Accomodation office. Apartments are located in Randwick (an eastern suburb of Sydney close to Centennial Park , Fox Studios , Bondi Beach, Oxford Street , and "downtown" Sydney ). These apartments are ideal for beach-side living, but also make meeting Australians difficult since mostly international students, most of whom are from the U.S. live in these units.

Additional information on housing may be found at the UNSW Housing Office site.
