    The cost of attendance at University of New South Wales (UNSW) is estimated to be 70,000 AUD per annum, undoubtedly a big financial commitment for any international student. Acknowledging this, the university offers a wide range of UNSW scholarships to students commencing studies in Australia.

    Location and the degree suited my needs and were a very flexible option for my abilities and goal for the future. I also really like the environment and the people at UNSW and the amount of social networking that occurs is amazing.

    No.

    Only one of two reputable universities providing my degree and this one allows for better involvement in campus life (the other option was Sydney Conservatorium of Music and being on a separate campus and only having 750 students limits opportunities).

    I've applied for 3 other universities such as UTS, WSU, USYD alongside UNSW and I've accepted my offer at UNSW due to its environment and study culture. My experience at UNSW open day also played a major role as well. However, there are times when I wish I would be studying at another institute, the reason being is due to trimesters. There is too much workload in a short period that students have now.

    Prestige and ranking mainly, however, the student life was fantastic. Additionally, the university provided excellent support in my application and accommodation requests. I was also able to find a job relatively easily during university which contributed greatly to my employability upon graduation. Another of my friends also attended this university with great reviews.

    It stands 10th in the world in accounting as per QS world ranking. Also, it has a five-star rating and a nice employment ratio. UNSW is also among the great 8 universities in Australia. Also, it is located in Sydney. Sydney is a business hub.

    Scholarship :

    Yes, I have organized it by my gov. I had to speak to the agents back in SL, meet the conditional requirements and with the support of the country got a school.

    The quality of education and the location. It is ranked amongst the top 50 universities for the medicine program. Sydney also offers an environment to learn and have fun at the same time. As an international student safety was also one of my priorities.

    Really good business school, high grad job expectations. Seem to be more up and coming and innovative than the other NSW alternative USYD. It is a bit further away, however, the people that go there seem to be less snobby and entitled.

    There are only two colleges in Sydney that offer actuarial studies degree and the University of New South Wales is one of them. Also, I like how this college has a diverse cultural atmosphere and also a historical background.

    Great law program and business program. I had heard a lot about how good the law school is for paving you the way for the beginning of your law career. The business school is current and encourages students to be active and participate.

    Scholarship :

    ALL Australian citizens are eligible for HECS FEE-HELP for university which is an interest-free loan and this can be gained by providing your tax file number to the university.

    Good reputation and leading-edge facilities along with the fun atmosphere. Also with HECS and being an Australian citizen, there is no difference in cost when choosing more prestigious universities that offer better educational programs.
