Best uni

I love it so far. As an international student, I would highly recommend it. Tutors and other students are friendly and welcoming. Also, it is the highest ranked in business in Australia and the world.

A good place to work and develop a career

UNSW prides itself on a respectful culture, embracing diversity and driving innovation. I think it "walks the talk" more than other Group of Eight universities. I definitely think it has the edge on innovation compared to others and its HR recruitment and onboarding is better than most.

Work Environment and Culture

The work environment at UNSW is vibrant and intellectually stimulating. The campus is modern and well-maintained, providing a conducive atmosphere for learning and collaboration. The university encourages diversity and inclusivity, and I have always felt respected and supported by my colleagues and superiors. There are numerous opportunities for professional development, workshops, and seminars, which further enhance the work culture.

Great collaborative workplace

Great collaborative workplace. Although, at times senior management may not be aware of the limited resources. Varies according to faculties and divisions though.

Great university

In fact, I am just a student, but I have gained a lot at UNSW. The school system is efficient and the facilities are well equipped. Although there is pressure to study, the atmosphere is relatively relaxed and the teachers are friendly and professional.

Lots of equipments and instruments

The location is not so good, but lots of facilities for scientists and engineers. The stipend is too small unless you have teaching. Can be extremely competitive

It's a great University

There are great teachers and not so great teachers. Throughout my 2 years of studying at UNSW, I've only had a few good teachers, but I think this is most likely due to the fact that these teachers haven't fully adapted to the online lectures that are forced upon them due to the pandemic.


High education
