Your step-by-step guide to start studying at UNSW College.
Once you have considered your options and know which program to apply for – along with checking the academic and English language entry requirements – you can follow the five steps below.
Before you begin, you will need certified copies of the following:
If you’re under 18 years old, you will need additional documents.
All documents must be clear and readable.
Certified documents must be original; photocopy of a certified copy is not acceptable. Certified documents can be accepted in hard copy by mail or by fax or email. However, all successful applicants must be prepared to bring their original documents with them to Australia and present them for examination when requested. If any fraudulent documents are discovered, appropriate action will be taken which will result in the withdrawal of an offer or the termination of an enrolment. Detailed checking of supporting documents in an inherent element of our admissions process and may involve contacting the original issuing authoring, or relevant tertiary admissions centre, education or other relevant organisations or individual, whether in Australia or overseas, to verify documents
Applicants from People’s Republic of China should provide original or certified copies of transcripts in both Chinese and English which must be the certified bound booklets issued by a Notary Public Office in both Chinese and English.

The authorised certifying officer must:
write on each page of the copies: “I certify this to be a true and unaltered copy of the original document as sighted by me”,
sign and print their name in full,
provide a contact telephone number and an address,
state their profession or occupation,
if the certifying officer is a Justice of the Peace, he must also provide his Registration Number,
write on the copy the date certified, and
affix the official stamp or seal of the certifier’s organisation on the copy.
You must have the original documents posted to us. Please note, however, UNSW College Student Services is not responsible for any loss or damage to the documents. UNSW College recommends students to contact one of our registered overseas representatives in their area if they require assistance in applying for the program. View the detailed agent list.
If you are going to study in Sydney, you will need to apply for a visa. To do that, you will need an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE), which you will receive after you have completed Step 3.
Visit the Australian Government website for information on how to apply for a student visa.
You will receive information about your orientation session by email. It is compulsory to attend, whether you’re studying face-to-face or online, as it is a crucial step to your success with us.
After Orientation Day, you are ready to begin your UNSW College program.
