International Students

UNSW has the Aussie Mate Program.
Students can join the planned social activities throughout the semester to meet other exchange and UNSW students. Many UNSW Aussie Mates are outgoing exchange students who have either returned from exchange or plan to study overseas in the following session, so they are keen to meet people from their exchange destination.


We have secured on-campus accommodation through the Study Abroad program at the self-catered University Terraces (limited places) and fully-catered Kensington Colleges. Further details, including the fees, application form and deadline will be sent to students after they have been accepted into the exchange program.
Students can also apply for other on-campus apartments and colleges independently. Information on different on-campus housing options is available at:

Expected Monthly Expenditures

We recommend around AUD $18,000 – AUD $21,000 for one year and AUD $9,000 – AUD $11,000 for one semester. See: www.international.unsw.edu.au/living-sydney/cost-living for a breakdown of costs. Note that this is for the basics and does not include holiday travel and entertainment costs.
