Coursework Office

Welcome to the Coursework Office! Our team is here to assist you with any coursework-related issues that you may encounter during your postgraduate studies at UNSW. We work closely with key academic staff, including the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Deans of Faculties, Head of Schools, Postgraduate Course Co-ordinators, and academic teaching staff, to ensure that your academic concerns are addressed.

The Vice-President (Coursework) is responsible for representing academic coursework issues to the appropriate working committees within UNSW, such as the Student Development Committee (SDC), the University Academic Quality Committee (UAQC) and the Academic Board Programs Committee (ABPC).

Our Coursework Committee Liaison provides guidance to and oversees a dedicated committee who volunteer their time to uplift the postgraduate voice and experience. They organise workshops or seminars that would benefit postgraduate coursework students (either virtually or in person) and assist in advocating for issues presented by Coursework Committee members.

We are committed to providing you with the best possible support and resources to help you succeed in your studies. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any concerns or questions. We're here to help!
