This page provides information on how to select courses for your semester study abroad in Australia. Please start by reading the Important Notes, and then select your specific program for further instructions.

Important Notes

Read this first

  • For students that have already applied, the courses you pick at this stage are for pre-approval. You are not actually signing up at this time and you will not work with the university timetable until your arrival at orientation.
  • ALWAYS choose at least 6-8 courses in order to have enough to select from in the event you do not fulfill pre-requisites or that courses overlap on the timetable.
  • Make sure to review your course selections with your academic advisor in order to ensure that your credits will transfer back to your home university.

About the Courses (Units)

  • Courses are not set in stone. You will be able to make changes to your initial list throughout the enrollment process.
  • Although courses do not change tremendously from year-to-year, please be aware that you may need to make additional selections once units are officially published, past when courses are submitted.
  • Typical course load: 30-40 credit points (Most courses are 10 Australian credits / 3-5 US credits)
  • Normal courses enrolled in: 3 – 4 courses (30-40 Australian credits / 12 – 16 US credits)
  • According to student visa regulations, students are allowed to take 25% of their courses online. Therefore, if you are enrolled in 4 courses, you can take 1 online course. If you are only enrolled in 3 courses, you cannot take an online course as this would be 33% of your course load. Furthermore, some US institutions do not allow study abroad students to take online courses. Check with your home university prior to enrolling in an online class.

 Course Level

Generally when you view courses you’ll see them organized by 1000-4000 levels, however this can vary depending on the university.

  • 1000-level course is the equivalent of a 200-level/sophomore level US course.
  • 2000-level course is the equivalent of a 300-level/junior level US course.
  • 3000-level course is the equivalent of a 400-level/senior level US course. (Note: These 
courses require a high level of competency and you will most likely need to fulfill 
numerous pre-requisites.)
  • 4000-level + courses are graduate level and for the most part, are not open to study 
abroad students.

How to submit Your courses to TEAN

  1. Meet with an advisor at your home university to make sure your courses are approved.
  2. Email your TEAN Program Manager if you require any syllabi for pre-approval.
  3. Submit your course selections on your TEAN online application.

There are very few changes year to year so until the 2018 timetable is available (typically late September) please refer to the 2017 version. 
  3. You will want to make sure you’re looking at courses offered at the Kensington Campus, and at the undergraduate level.  
  4. Select the option “Teaching Period One” for U.S. spring semester courses or “Teaching Period Two” for U.S. fall semester courses. Ignore the options with A, B, C listed after the name.
  5. This page gives you each Subject Area in alphabetical order. Click on the Subject Area of interest, then the specific course you want to view.
  6. On each course page you can verify the teaching period, course instructor, meeting times, etc. You can also click on “Online Handbook Record” in the upper right hand corner of the page to view a description of the course.
  7. UNSW has a number of campuses. The main campus is Kensington (Sydney). Do not choose University Campus as it is in Canberra (3 hours from Sydney). Many Art courses will be offered on the Paddington Campus which is a few bus stops away from the main Kensington Campus. There is a free shuttle.
  8. Once you identify 6-8 courses that match your criteria, enter them into your TEAN application under “TEAN Course Selection”.
