    Unavoidable --ing clashes

    Turns out it's impossible to enrol in Complex Analysis and Several Variable Calculus, because each course has only one lecture stream and the little fuckers overlap. Also, there is no combination of the higher streams of these courses that can be taken to avoid this clash. To top it off...

    3/4 Time Uni

    Heya, a lot of people I know are doing part time uni, that is, doing 2 courses per semester instead of 4 (each subject contributing 6 Units of Credit). I was wondering, is it possible to to do 75% of a full-time load for your entire degree, so do 3 subjects per semester so that a 4 year...

    Can't enrol in a subject I need to do.

    Greetings people. It seems I can't enrol in EDST1101 because the lecture is only on one line, and it is full. Quite annoying, considering it is a subject I need to do if I don't want to be a semester behind. Is there any way around it? Only 2 out of the 15ish tutes available are full, so...

    Accomodation available for UNSW students.

    Ok, so I know this isn't the best place to put an ad, but our house is right next to the uni and is basically designed for uni students.... We've got two Large rooms in a 4-bedroom house, about 30 seconds walk (across the road) from the uni if anyone is interested. Rent is $140 a week, but...

    Changing courses (yr 1 to yr 2)

    Heya, I know I've asked questions about transferring before, but I just have a few more questions.... Firstly, I've decided to change from BCommerce to BScience/BEducation with the goal of becoming a maths teacher. As I understand it you can use your UAI to get into university for 2 years, and...

    Union fees

    I completely forgot about my S1 union fees.... still haven't paid them, and can't really afford to cough up $250 at the moment either. Just wondering what the repercussions are of not paying your union fees, because in a few weeks I'll have S2 union fees due as well... Thanks in advance.

    Heya, My tutor said the other day that raw marks at the end if a session are scaled depending on the difficulty of the course, so a pass mark would generally be less than 50. Is this true? And if so does anyone know where one can get stats and information on scaling?

    Transferring courses ASAP

    Heya, I'm considering changing my course from B Commerce to something that I know the UAI requirements are a lot lower (B Science/B Education majoring in maths). What would the process be to transfer? Surely this isn't one of those occasions where to transfer to a course I'd need a D...

    MATH1151 Lectures

    Just wondering, for MATH1151, there are four lectures every week. Are these lectures the same, just at different times so it is more convenient for people to choose which one they attend, or is it necessary to attend all four? Thanks for your help :)

    It's thursday the 10th of February. University starts in only a few weeks. I've been busy these holidays finding a house and moving all my crap into it, and in doing so I have misplaced pretty much all information the university sent to me after I accepted my offer (B Commerce). Also, I...

    Commerce troubles

    I'm doing Commerce at UNSW and I've accepted the offer (or so I'm told since the status is "Matriculation" on myUNSW). I haven't done much in terms of choosing my electives, as I've been busy house-hunting in Sydney (rent in Sydney is ridiculous :( ) Anyways, I have a few questions: 1)...

    I'm feeling a little in the dark right now, I was just made an offer to do B Commerce, which I have wanted to do for ages. I was always under the impression that everyone except for the co-ops who did B Commerce did the same subjects in the first year, and then chose majors and minors for their...
