    How Asian is UNSW?

    Like is it 90% asians/indians or what? I've heard from mates that it is super asian and a lot of selective school kids and internationals go there, is this true?

    Re: How Asian is UNSW?

    Very. From my personal experience I spent there last year, realistically speaking, I'd say probably at least 70% of the UNSW student population is asian, both local and international.

    Yes, a lot of selective school and international students are at UNSW. I'd say it's >60 percent composed of asians, although I wouldn't push it past 75 percent.

    If you go to the Art and Design faculty at the Darlinghurst campus, it almost seems that you're at a completely different uni.

    How Asian is UNSW?

    Depends on the course really.

    A greater proportion in courses such as Commerce or Engineering compared to courses such as Arts or Law.

    Re: How Asian is UNSW?

    From what I know, the majority of selective students in the Sydney area would choose UNSW as their uni. Case in point, 50-60% of SBHS students moved to UNSW in the past 5-6 years. Most of them are Asian, so yeah, there you go. :P

    Anyway the campus is at least 60-70% Asian, and also 10% international students, majority of whom are mainland Chinese and HK people.

    Have you've been to Hurstville or Chatswood? The demographic there is comparable to UNSW if you haven't been there already.

    Most selective schools feed into UNSW and as they're usually >85% asian you can imagine the demographics

    You won't. These 'asians' are mostly Australians who were born in Australia...

    I guess internationals are a different story. But even then, if they get involved they're great friends too. But most of the people you'll see at UNSW are Australian, even though a good chunk are international.

    You will only ever feel left out if you don't have any friends, and that simply means make some... go to society events and get involved with your peers.

    Anyways, I thought everyone exaggerated the asian thing until one day I decided to actually come to terms with it.

    Was the only brown person on a peak hour bus full of asians
