Your O-Week Checklist

If you’re a UNSW Online student, your orientation looks a little different. Check to see how you can make the most of your orientation week and that you’re all set up to begin your studies! 

1) Accept or defer your offer 

Inform the University of your intention to take up your offer to study at UNSW.  

If you need any help accepting or deferring your offer, contact our Enrolment Advisors at [email protected] or call 1300 974 990.

2) Enrol in your courses for the academic year

Select and enrol in your specific courses. It is generally advised that students enrol for the academic year, to ensure they are fully prepared, can plan for success, and avoid forced study gaps due to course availabilities. Once you have enrolled into your course, you will also need to register for your class – WEB (online). Registering for a class is required to confirm your enrolment.  

Watch this video on how to accept/enrol for more information.
