UNSW Canberra graduates shape Australia, the region and the international community as leaders in defence, government and industry.

 Working at the intersection of a leading university and a military academy, UNSW has been educating defence leaders for half a century.


The information here is for prospective students. Current students should refer to their relevant UNSW Handbook.

UNSW Canberra has opened up enrolments for single and dual engineering degree programs, as well as single-year Honours programs in Arts, Business, Computing and Cyber Security, and Science to non-Defence students for 2018.

Undergraduate entry to the Academy is open to Australian residents who are members of the Australian Defence Force and selected members of overseas Armed Forces. Cadets are selected by one of the three armed services and must also meet academic entry requirements as well as age, physical and personal requirements.
