ILR School and the University of New South Wales Exchange (UNSW)


University of New South Wales, AustraliaSince spring 2011, the ILR School and the University of New South Wales, Australia offer a tuition neutral student exchange program to undergraduate students at both institutions. UNSW is a world-class research university with a reputation for being the leading international university in Australia.  It manages a large and active exchange program with over 190 different student exchange opportunities in 32 countries.  Students can go for one semester or a full-academic year, and take a wide variety of courses from across the university.

The agreement was formalized on October 13, 2010 in a signing by the Dean of the Industrial and Labor Relations School at Cornell University, Harry C. Katz and the President and Vice-Chancellor of The University of New South Wales, Frederick G. Hilmer. In addition to undergraduate student exchanges, the ILR-UNSW agreement seeks to stimulate collaboration of faculty and doctoral students through mini-conferences each year, facilitate research, provide research opportunities for faculty on sabbatical.

Plan to attend an information session on Wednesday, September 3rd, 5pm, 116 Ives Hall. For more information, please contact Donna Ramil, dmr47@cornell.edu Associate Director of International Programs in ILR, 117 Ives Hall.
