Ordinarily, students are subject to a maximum of 40 hours per fortnight during term. Students should contact their employer for more information. 我们还想提醒国际学生,联邦政府已经为那些在大型超市工作或在老年护理部门工作的人引入了特殊的工作安排,将工作时间延长到2020年5月1日。一般来说,学生在学期中每两周最多要学习40小时。学生应与雇主联系以获得更多信息。

Student Accommodation 住宿信息 UNSW Accommodation will continue to waive fees for a specified cohort of students who choose to return home or extend their time away from University Colleges and Apartments until the start of Term 2, Monday 1 June.

Students who wish to remain can be confident that normal operations with increased physical distancing protocols and enhanced cleaning will continue.

Scams 谨防诈骗!!! UNSW is aware of two different scams targeting the international student community at this time. The scam emails purport to be from UNSW representatives and use the University’s COVID-19 email header. The scammers ask for large sums of money using false pretences such as that: UNSW is investigating the number of hours international students work and that while the investigation is underway, students must pay a certain large sum of money. Students who have deferred due to COVID19 must have $60,000 (amount may vary) in their bank account and prove this by providing bank account details. Students who don’t comply are threatened with their offer being revoked. It's very important for students to understand that these are scams and that UNSW would not behave or communicate in this way. If any student receives communication asking for money, students should notify IT Service Centre.
