Notify the University
You must notify the University of any change to your residency status within seven (7) days of receiving formal confirmation from the Australian Government.
How you do this depends on whether you are a commencing student, or are already studying at UNSW.
Please be aware that if you provide falsified documents in support of your application, then this will result in one of a range of penalties, from failure in the course to suspension or exclusion. In some cases, the matter could also be reported to ICAC. As a student, you should be aware of your obligations and responsibilities under the Student Code.
Please see our information for commencing students:
All other students
If your Change of Student Residency Status form is received by The Nucleus: Student Hub on or before the census date of the term in which you are enrolled, you will be transferred to a Domestic Fee-paying place for that term.
If your Change of Student Residency Status form is received by The Nucleus: Student Hub after the census date of the term in which you are enrolled, you will be liable for International student fees for that term, and will be transferred to a Domestic Fee-paying place for the following term.
Commonwealth Supported places (CSP) are offered in all undergraduate programs and in a limited range of postgraduate coursework programs. Because CSPs are limited, eligibility is not automatic and international students who become domestic students are required to compete for a place based on merit.
