Hi there.

I don't know how active this community is but I have a question. It might seem stupid but I need to know.

I intend on dropping one of my courses for this semester, which I believe must be done by tomorrow, Monday 31st August to avoid HELP fees, failure on records, etc... But how do I actually do this? I got the impression from myUNSW that all I really have to do is click the 'drop' button next to the course, but this can't be right? Surely I have to do something more?

Does anyone here want to hang out on Foundation Day?

I am interested in going but I have not really made any Uni friends yet (I only go part time and started this year).

Let me know if you wanna get together...

Also is anyone participating in the Scavenger Hunt? It would be cool to see how teams are progressing...

Hey little confused here. Everyone's been telling me something different.
So what day does uni start this sem? the 3rd or 10th?
Is Week Zero the same as O-week?

Hey all,

Any ideas when the mid-session recess is this semester? It's looking like it may just be Easter- is this true?

Gday Kittens...

I have a room in a cute three bedroom cottage in Mascot available. Recently renovated, with beautiful rustic wooden floorboards. Roomy rooms, four metres by four metres, all of which are furnished apart from yours. The most exciting features in our opinion are the piano and the big backyard which is slowly evolving into a veggie garden. All set up with kitchen stuff, etc. Well connected to transport (30min bus to city, 10min to UNSW) and shops. No tv! (yes, we see that as a positive thing).

We are looking for someone to share in our striving towards a simple, ecologically friendly, low impact lifestyle. We appreciate open, creative, energetic, friendly souls who don't read the Telegraph. Someone who wants to get their hands dirty in the veggie garden would be an added bonus. Anyone, from the radical activist to someone wanting to begin greening their lifestyle is welcome. We'd like to have someone who will make it a home, not just a place to sleep. We want you! (A washing machine is a definite plus!)

Rent is $130 per week plus four weeks bond. $40 per fortnight normally covers bills (gas, green electricity, cable internet, and voip phone).

The room is available from christmas. Get in early before the pre-uni rush!

Other housemates: Tristan, 23, Student Architect, Rabid Greenie, Amateur green-thumb, port-drinker extraordinaire, passionate observer of the human condition, reluctant post-modernist searching for a metanarrative... Striving to minimse his ecological footprint and learn how to grow stuff. Philosophies include: 'free stuff tastes better,' Addictions include: Teh interwubs, music, cycling, bin diving, gardening, photography
Kelly, 21, future UTS marine biology student, and her boyfriend Hugh, 19, from Sydney, studying Enviro Science at UTS.

Anyone interested, give me a reply and we will get in contact!

Hi. I'm a cultural studies honours student from UQ and I'm thinking about applying to do my PhD in health, sexuality and culture at the National Centre for HIV Social Research at UNSW. Does anyone know whether this is generally a good program? Also whether there are many places available for PhD students? What about APAs or other scholarships?
Hi there!

I'm an American biology and environmental science student getting ready to finish up a BS in May 2008.

I'm in the process of figuring out what I want to do with my life, including prospects for graduate school.

I found what looks to be a pretty sweet program at UNSW: A Master's by Coursework in Conservation Biology. The coolest bit is that the program is 6 months at UNSW, and then 6 months at the University of Victoria in Wellington, NZ. It's all super far away, considering I wouldn't enrol until Jan 2009... BUT, I have to make up my mind because grad schools in the US have application dates between December 2007 and February 2008.

I have loads of questions, and any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated!!

-Does anyone have any experience with the MCBio thingo?
-Are there any American uni students out there who decided to pursue a Masters at UNSW? I noticed that the undergraduate systems don't line up perfectly (a US 4-year liberal arts versus an Aussie 3-year to-the-point degree), was that transition hard to make?
(Side note: I've already figured out that I need to do a Masters by Coursework since I don't have an honours year equivalent, which you need to do a Masters by Research. BUST!)
-You chose UNSW, but were there any other schools you liked?
-What is the availability/likelyhood of securing a teaching assistanceship? If that sort of job isn't available, what do you all do for money?
-Any general words of advice on anything at all?

Thanks so much for you help!!

I'd like to buddy up with a few people from the North Side to create a 'drive into UNSW car pool' early each weekday instead of using public transport. I drive once a week myself. If anyone is coming from the Marsfield/Ryde areas and are interested, please let me know.
