Sydney, Australia's largest city, is known for its ideal climate, relaxed beach lifestyle and friendly locals. The city is centered on breathtaking Sydney Harbour, location of the world-famous Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbor Bridge. Surrounded by beaches and beautiful, leafy suburbs, a water view is never far away. Whether it's early in the morning or late in the day, this city of over 4 million is always buzzing with activity.


While attending the University of New South Wales, you will enroll in 4 classes, each worth 4 U.S. semester credits. Each class that you will take at the University of New South Wales must be approved by UAB via the course articulation process.
Course articulation is the process that determines the UAB equivalent for the foreign courses you will take. Course articulation is a vital component of planning your experience. This process starts when you submit, to the Office of Education Abroad, a syllabus for each course you intend to take while abroad. Then the Office of Education Abroad works with the UAB Registrar, UAB department chairs, and advisors to determine the UAB course equivalency for each of your intended courses. 
The good news is that many classes at the University of New South Wales have already been articulated! To review the list of pre-articulated classes, please click on the Courses Offered link above. To review all classes available at the University of New South, please click here.
