Well I haven't been to UNSW, but I go to Sydney and do an BSc (adv). I chose Sydney because of its reputation and also because of the courses it offers. In terms of honours at Sydney, you will need to have a credit average, but to stay in the BSc (adv), you will also need to maintain a credit average. So basically, if you want to be a "scientist" honours is a must, but you can do that at both universities.yeah same i was wondering which uni would be better for Adv Science UNSW or USYD
I do med sci at UNSW; but seriously people:How hard is it to get into UNSW's honours? Even though it's compulsory, you still need the marks... How about USyd? The website says you need to apply and it's competitive :S
either or. If neuro is your thing; go unsw. They just spent like a couple of million revamping the whole neuro labs (whilst hey were building the lowy cancer centre). They look pretty sick; and the neuro gys are cool, friendly scientist as well (pascal, richard vickery = v.cool).i've been wondering the same thing. usyd or unsw??
i'm interested in studying psychology and neuroscience... and i like how unsw's neuroscience study plan has subjects from psych and neuroscience nicely fitted together
but not sure about usyd... doesnt really say much on the website ... but usyd defs does have "reputation" i rkn.
It'd be similar. Its hard to say which is better though... It depends how good the teaching is in in each subject. I haven't been to UOW; so I can't comment on it. Most of the subjects taught in UNSW are pretty solid.Is the advanced Science course at UOW considered any good in comparison to UNSW?
I personally prefer new-looking buildings to old-looking buildings lol.USYD's science research is ranked higher than UNSW.
- Sandstone buildings
- Better known internationally
- Higher ranking in the world (research)
UNSW: (I can't say much about this, I've only been to USYD)
- Extra 15 minute bus ride if you don't live in the area
Lol is it that bad?Anyway I wouldn't choose to do science unless I want to be a bus driver when I graduate.
