Requesting a standard letter

You must be enrolled in the current term and have no outstanding debt to UNSW to request a standard letter. You must also have access to myUNSW.

Centrelink letters

All domestic students currently enrolled in an undergraduate or postgraduate program can use the Centrelink Self-Service in myUNSW to generate Centrelink letters except those students:

  1. enrolled in more than one program, or
  2. who have transferred between programs at UNSW during the academic year. 

To access the Centrelink Self-Service:

  • login to myUNSW and navigate to My Student Profile > Online Services > Centrelink self-service.

If you fall into either of the exceptions above:

  • login to myUNSW and navigate to My Student Profile tab > Online Services > Statements > Centrelink.

All letters requested are sent to the student’s email address.

UNSW Canberra and Graduate Research School students should continue to apply directly to their respective offices.

You may need a letter of indemnity from UNSW as evidence of insurance coverage for work experience, placement or assignment.
