History of UNSW
The idea of founding the university originated from the crisis demands of World War II, during which the nation's attention was drawn to the critical role that science and technology played in transforming an agricultural society into a modern and industrial one. The post-war Labor government of New South Wales recognised the increasing need to have a university specialised in training high-quality engineers and technology-related professionals.

Why do we love UNSW?
“Study English course at UNSW Global is quite challenging and fun. It is a UEEC course to prepare myself academically to pathway into UNSW Sydney Master Degree level. This course will force me to improve my skills all the way and in the end they will access student’s results. Study at the university hardly meet any Thai students which is good for me to practice a lot of English because the important thing is to get very good communication skills. I make a lot of new friends here and everyone in the class is very nice and friendly. They are so helpful and it is a wonderful experience for me.”
