We are UNSW College

We’ve changed our name to UNSW College to better reflect our inclusive and growing diverse community of students. UNSW College provides the same prestigious education experience and continues to support students with opportunities to progress into their chosen degree at UNSW Sydney.

UNSW College entrance

A proud past and a bright future for English Language and international education excellence! Over the past 50 years, we have helped more than 40,000 graduates achieve their dreams of studying at university, it’s a legacy of international education that we are extremely proud of.   

Our transition to UNSW College

Welcoming students from a diverse range of backgrounds and nations is a big part of who we are at UNSW College. That’s why the UNSW Institute of Languages was first established in 1966, Australia’s first Foundation Studies program launched in 1989, and our first TNE campuses opened in 1994,  all becoming UNSW Global in 2007 and paving the way for UNSW College in 2023.
