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)

Students may refer to the 2018 Handbook to search course availability. You may also view the UNSW timetable schedules and class utilization tool.
 
Students normally enroll in 24 points per semester (usually 4 courses/units), but must take a minimum of 18 points (3 courses) in order to earn full UB credit. A course at UNSW worth 6 Points will convert to 4 UB Credits. While researching courses, it is important to note that fall semester at UB is Semester 2 at UNSW and spring semester at UB is Semester 1 at UNSW.

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.
