Hiya,

Thought i might start a thread regarding the differences (pros/cons etc) between UNSW and USYD.

I am currently a year 12 student about to enter uni next year and i noticed that many others like myself are struggling to put in UAC preferences for courses when it comes down to simply UNSW or USYD (specially when the ATAR cut offs are fairly similar).

So i was wondering if current students at UNSW or USYD could give some pros/cons of their uni and maybe what subjects/areas their unis are prestigious in and their own experiences with culture/university life and society. Maybe also outline what degree you are currently taking and your experiences in it..?


-> this is either gna fail horribly or be helpful for the next batch of students in the following years to come

I don't go to either but i recommend googling 'student reviews 'insert uni name'. It gives you a rating out of 10 for that uni, rated by students. It also uses a variety of criteria

Unsw is pretty much better at everything else.

tbh both unis are good - however they both have different cultures and demographic stats (more casuasians at usyd, more asians at unsw). you should go to info day in january to check both unis out.

The only responses here you will get are from UNSW students.
Well yeah - we all had the UNSW v USyd dilemma, and we chose UNSW

and rightfully so

Usyd is better at law and maths.
Unsw is pretty much better at everything else.
arguably better at law

but unsw is definitely better for maths

Pro: Sydney university has Redfern station which is 14 minutes walk to the main campus

Con: UNSW lack of a train station within even an hour walk away!
or you can take a lovely array of buses from central to get to unsw to get you there in air conditioned freshness???

Since you talk about choosing one uni over the other, everyone at usyd law chose to go to usyd law. There are also a handful of unsw law guns that transferred to usyd after first year. How many went from usyd law to unsw law (i.e. those that werent struggling)?

Also shadowdude you didnt answer my previous question - whats your WAM you math god?
