The University of New South Wales (a member of the U21 network) is a world class research university with a reputation for being the leading international university in Australia. UNSW is consistently ranked in the top 2 Australian universities for Learning and Teaching Performance and has recently been ranked as 45th in the world by the Times Higher Education.

Established in 1949, UNSW has expanded rapidly and now has close to 46,000 students, including more than 9,500 international students from over 130 different countries. UNSW has been accepting international students since 1951 and is proud of its international heritage and history of regional and global engagement.

The University attracts leading academics and researchers from around the world, and actively encourages two way student mobility. UNSW is renowned for its commitment to new and creative approaches to education and research. Its motto - Scientia Manu et Mente ("Knowledge by Hand and Mind") - encapsulates the University's central philosophy of balancing the practical and the scholarly.

UNSW is a founding member of the prestigious Group of Eight research intensive universities in Australia and a member of the Universitas 21 international consortium. UNSW has a broad disciplinary base, with Faculties of Arts and Social Sciences; Built Environment; Engineering; Law; Medicine and Science, as well as the College of Fine Arts, the Australian School of Business and UNSW@ADFA.

The main campus is situated on 38 hectares at Kensington, an inner south-eastern suburb of Sydney about 20 minutes drive from both the central business district and the airport. UNSW is also located about 2 kilometres from Sydney’s famous beaches, Coogee and Bondi. The University has two smaller campuses; Paddington campus (devoted entirely to the College of Fine Arts); and the University College (Faculty of Military Studies) in Canberra.
