Sydney is internationally acknowledged as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Clear blue skies, friendly people, a beautiful harbour and beaches and a healthy outdoor lifestyle make this a great place to live.
Like every big city around the world, you need to be alert and aware, especially if you travel at night. Generally, Sydney is quite safe, as long as you behave in a sensible and responsible way.
UNSW has its own on-campus security service everyday and a series of safety contact points in case of a campus emergency. In Australia, the police are well respected and available to assist in an emergency. They can be contacted on 000 at any time.
UNSW Global also produces a special “Staying Safe in New South Wales” brochure which is handed to each student at our orientation activities.
