Current students

Term 1 Applications

All students wishing to commence in Term 1 must have their course completion confirmed by their university in December the year prior (check with Student Services for the exact date each year). If you expect to finish your studies in Summer Semester, you won't be eligible to apply for Term 1 and should apply for mid-year entry instead. 

Term 3 Applications

If you are due to complete your studies at another university in Semester 1/Term 1, we regret that you won't be eligible to apply for mid-year entry into the UNSW JD program. This is due to the early commencement of JD classes in Term 3 and late availability of final Semester 1/Term 1 results. Please apply for Term 1 admission in the following year. 

If you are a current UNSW student expecting to complete your studies at the end of Term 1 you may apply for mid-year entry into the UNSW JD program, but offers are strictly dependent on the availability of places.
