Starting in 2019, UNSW's academic calendar will consist of three 10-week terms. In order to accommodate study abroad students, UNSW will offer intensive courses prior to the start of Terms 1 and 3. You will enroll in four courses total while you are in Australia, taking an intensive course for study abroad students in January or August followed by a full academic load of three courses alongside Australian and international students.

Most courses carry 6 UNSW credits, which typically will be registered as 3 SU credits. Courses and grades from UNSW will be posted to your academic record and factored into your overall GPA at SU.

For a list of courses pre-approved for SU credit, please click on the "Courses Offered" link at the top of this page. There is no guarantee courses on the list will be offered during your semester abroad, so please refer to the World Partner website for the most up-to-date course offerings. If you want to take a course that is not already approved, Syracuse Abroad will assist in obtaining approval from the appropriate SU academic department.
