Tell me more!
The beer brewing and musical appreciation society. Everyone knows each other though, and they'd be 3rd year and up now (I think they're enggo students) so it's hard to get into.

Just some advice having just completed my undergraduate double degree of 4 years(UTS).
Making your decision
- Do what you feel you will like
- Don't do something that's going to be a waste of time such as pure B.Arts degree's
-Business degrees are always good to combine with anything
- be optimistic in your choice and don't settle for medicority if you feel your ATAR is competitive enough for what you WANT.
- talk with graduates and ask them what it's like, what they regret etc...

At Uni...
Meeting people:

Take every opportunity to be involved with uni.
Be Outgoing but don't ignore others as you never know who you may fail to network with.
Network with everyone! BUT try and form a group of close friends who live around you or catch the same train or share similar interests.
Don't be closed minded.
* I can guarantee the people you meet in 1st year will not be the same people you graduate with*
This may be racist but it's a given fact: Don't waste your time socialising with international students and try avoid having them in your group assignments.
They stick to themselves and fail to integrate into university culture. You might Object to this statement lol but in a few years come back and read it again.

Studying
-Maximise your marks in your first year, GPA falls continuously and first year subjects are piss-easy.
- don't memorise the content by heart, familiarise and apply the content to questions to succeeed
- don't be a brown nose to lecturers etc
- don't be a photographer when it comes to lectures (i.e. dont take photos of useless shit in lectuers)
- study smart, balance study with personal health development and career prospects

you related to this chick...


personally never had a fobby international for group assignments... yet... fingers crossed it won't happen... its not that I will mind or anything its just that the internationals that I've seen around uni's never actually rock up to uni... then again I've had local students do the same thing... so I guess it is not a nationality or status sort of thing

had a Canadian international student in my group for an assignment in my last degree... pretty young thang... bit stuck up but...

she did a good job with uni work that's what matter the most...

International students that survive the first few years are usually pretty good people. The lazy ones don't make it.

Tbh, I can't wait! I've already downloaded a bunch of uni apps - like lostoncampus and some other unsw ones like uni-verse and the asb one

I've tried searching up notes online for unsw commerce but I can't seem to find any. Well... i found one but you have to pay to access them :( anyone care to share?

don't stress, i decided the day preferences closed
What did you pick in the end and was it the right choice?

Im beginning to. Didnt stress at all for the HSC but this is just infuriatingly stressful. Especially because the things im tossing up between are so different.
