T he UNSW Online Handbook is a "one-stop shop" for prospective and current students seeking information about studying at UNSW. It contains detailed information about all the programs (degrees), plans (disciplinary streams) and courses (subjects) offered at the University.

The Handbook offers the latest information on approved programs and courses and provides extensive details of program content, rules and structure, credit point requirements and course information. Previous editions of the Handbook are also available online.

There are various methods of searching for program and course information available. Prospective students may browse the Handbook by fields such as "area of interest" or "occupation", and by the "Table of Contents" to the left of the screen. Current students may also use the "Quick Find" search to rapidly locate information relating to their current program or courses of interest.
If you are uncertain of any terminology relating to studying at UNSW, please refer to our Glossary.
