Dear Students,

Below is some information about the 2019 UNSW3+ calendar.

According to our records, it is my understanding that you won’t be directly affected by the 2019 calendar change, since you are among one of the groups of students listed below. Students transitioning from the current to the new calendar will shortly be receiving communications guiding them through their 2018 enrolment and future degree planning. As you won’t be affected, you will not receive these communications.

If your circumstances have changed, or you expect they will, and you now anticipate studying a degree that is transitioning to the new calendar in 2019, please see the information below. If you have any questions, please send an email to Student.3plus@unsw.edu.au, visit the drop-in centre (details below), or contact your Faculty Student Centre.

Best wishes

Merlin

If your circumstances have changed, or you expect they will, or you believe our information about your program is incorrect and you now anticipate studying a degree that is transitioning to the new calendar in 2019, please see the information below. If you have any questions, please send an email to Student.3plus@unsw.edu.au, visit the drop-in centre (details below), or contact your Faculty Student Centre.

Drop-in Centre

A drop-in marquee will be in operation from Tuesday, 3 October to Friday, 20 October in the CLB Courtyard at the UNSW Kensington Campus with Faculty Advisors who can assist students who are transitioning between the calendars. While the calendar change should not affect you directly, for your information, the centre will be open weekdays from 10am-3pm for questions regarding the transition to the new calendar. Outside of these hours, students may still go to their regular Faculty Advisors for support.

The UNSW3+ calendar initiative

I understand that the change to the academic calendar is significant. We have mapped the transition period over 2017 and 2018, and my staff and I are all committed to working to ensure the process is as smooth as possible.

It is our intention that the UNSW3+ calendar will be a significant educational initiative that strengthens UNSW, enhances its reputation, and will offer our students:
  • Flexibility to spread a normal study load of 8 courses over three 10-week terms, meaning that instead of 4 concurrent courses per semester, students will take 3 or 2 courses per term;
  • Students can do nine courses a year to free up a term for internships, volunteering or personal commitments; and
  • A minimum full-time load will be 6 courses spread over the 3 terms, which is an important option for students who need or would prefer a lighter study load.
I’d like to thank you all for your ongoing feedback and support throughout the implementation process and wish you all well in your studies this year, and future endeavors.

Best wishes

Merlin
