At the University of Newcastle, we are committed to being a world-leading university for our regions. We are ranked in the top 200 universities in the world and for more than 55 years we have been delivering superior education and undertaking world-class research to help improve the lives of our communities.
Outstanding student experiences
Our vibrant campuses across Newcastle, the Central Coast, Sydney and Singapore provide spaces to learn, socialise and collaborate. These welcoming spaces are designed to inspire our more than 39,000 students and our staff to make a difference. We pride ourselves on offering an outstanding experience for our students and, regardless of their course, every student is encouraged to take up the opportunity to work with industry as part of their study – it means our graduates are not only job ready, but life ready.
A foundation of equity and excellence
We believe that every student with drive and aspiration is supported to succeed at the University of Newcastle, regardless of background or circumstance. That’s why we are proud that one in two of our undergraduate students are the first in their family to undertake tertiary education and why we are committed to creating pathways to university for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. This commitment is fundamental to how we teach and research, how we work with industry partners and local communities, and how we engage with our staff and students.
We are a globally-connected university that is committed to our region and ranked No.1 in Australia for industry collaboration. We know that a better tomorrow lies in our ability to find new solutions to some of the planet’s greatest challenges and our students can feel confident they are receiving a world-class education from experts in their fields, no matter what their area of study.
