Class format

Weekly classes

Courses offered on a weekly basis, over a 12 week semester, take the form of small groups. Weekly classes are usually held in the evening outside of traditional business hours (usually between 6pm and 8pm) at convenient city locations (including the UNSW CBD Campus and city law firms) or at UNSW’s Kensington campus.

Intensive classes

Intensive courses are concentrated seminars over full or half-days or weekends. This mode of delivery is particularly attractive to those in demanding full time employment. Please note that 100% attendance is required for intensive programs. Intensive classes are usually held on the Kensington campus.

Intensive summer school

Summer school is an integral part of the UNSW Law postgraduate coursework program. This additional academic session during December and January allows greater flexibility for students wishing to fast track their degrees or for those students needing to balance work and study commitments.

Flexible distance

Some courses are offered by flexible distance education. Refer to the Postgraduate guide or browse the online handbook for applicable courses.


Please note that courses offered in our postgraduate programs by UNSW Business School, UNSW Arts and Social Sciences, UNSW Medicine, UNSW Science and UNSW Canberra may differ in format and location - please consult the relevant Faculty for further information.
