“The course has strong focus on research and innovation. The research environment fostered a different way of thinking and students are encouraged to think innovatively to develop solutions to issues or problems” Chewy Chang, Alumnus

What stood out about the program? The program was appealing for its content and was structured in a pragmatic manner that supported both my work and study schedules. It combines past and proven theory with current thinking and approaches to contemporary issues in the property development process. It was great to listen to guest lecturers, who were often professionals working in the industry, outline key issues, approaches and solutions.

Why UNSW Built Environment? UNSW is a truly international institution, reflected by students from many countries and cultures. It is refreshing to listen to their concepts and approaches in classroom discussions but also outside of the classroom when socialising. The transformation of the main campus over the years has also been amazing and reflects UNSW as an institution that isn’t afraid to embrace change. Plus, knowing that it’s the closest university in Sydney to the beaches is a great thing.
