Important UNSW3+ Information

Last week CSESoc held an information session on the UNSW3+ Calendar in conjunction with the CSE School and the UNSW3+ Project team. Discussed was some important information regarding your CSE degree relating to it’s structure, internship opportunities and thesis.

We have created an information page on our website with links to important slides outlining changes to the academic calendar, together with a recording split in to two parts: a presentation of these slides, and general questions from CSE Students who were in attendance. Unfortunately some of the questions were not recorded well, however the quality of the answers should be clear. On the website, we have also attached links to important and critical resources for you to use to plan your degree.
