ACADEMIC PROGRAM
University at Buffalo School of Law students coordinate course choices with their academic advisors. Law students may "mix and match" coursework within the JD and Master's of Law programs; however, they may not enroll in courses with JURD course codes.

UNSW Law JD Program and
 Postgraduate Law coursework programs include:
  • Master of Laws (LLM)
  • Master of International Law and International Relations (MILIR)
  • Master of Human Rights Law and Policy (MHRLP)
  • Master of Dispute Resolution (MDR)
  • Master of Environmental Law & Policy (MELP)
  • Master of Business Law (MBL)
  • Master of Law, Media and Journalism (MLMJ)
  • Master of Criminal Justice & Criminology (MCJC) 
Students may view the UNSW Plan Your Study Tool to search courses. UB School of Law students should search "Undergraduate" Faculty of Law courses, beginning with the "Laws" course codes. You will see many undergrad "Laws" courses are cross-listed with graduate level "Jurd" courses. You may enroll in Laws classes only. 

UNSW Law has created a new course for the January and August terms (where students take just one course), LAWS3368:The Australian Legal System in Comparative Perspective. In addition, students will choose three courses for the remainder of Tailored Term 1 or Tailored Term 3.

ACCOMMODATION
The University of New South Wales has a number of on-campus and off-campus living options. Students can stay in on-campus accommodations with furnished single bedrooms and shared common areas and kitchens. Upon accepting an offer of admission, students may apply for housing.  Exchange students can choose self-catered on-campus accommodation in the University Terraces or Colombo House designed for more mature/graduate level students, or catered on-campus options in The Kensington Colleges, Fig Tree Hall College or UNSW Hall. Please visit the exchange student accommodations page for additional options including apartments, private accommodation, and homestay. 

UNSW accommodation applications are open to students once they have received their acceptance email, with attached letter, containing instructions on the application process for exchange students. Whereas, the affiliated campus accommodation applications are open as soon as students are nominated to UNSW. Unfortunately, on-campus housing is not guarantee, therefore, it is recommended that students apply as early as possible.
