Australia’s oldest regional university
With a history dating back to the 1930s, the University of New England (UNE) is one of Australia’s great multi-modal teaching, training and research universities.
In pioneering distance education, UNE has contributed to the nation’s development for nearly 100 years, enriching the lives of many people who would otherwise have been unable to pursue university studies.
Education – wherever you are
Approximately 80% of UNE’s students study online. With campuses in Armidale and Tamworth (under construction), nine regional study centres and in western Sydney, students can tailor their learning experience to suit their personal and professional needs.
Students, including international students from over 70 nations, can also choose to enjoy a vibrant residential experience. Accommodation options range from traditional, catered colleges to independent apartment-style living, a sporting complex and cultural facilities.
UNE has achieved the maximum five stars for overall student experience for the past 16 years; a feat unmatched by any other Australian public university, and is rated number one in NSW for teaching quality and student support.
Students can choose from a range of courses in the arts, humanities, education, health, economics, business, law, medicine, social and behavioural sciences, sport and exercise, and environmental sciences. UNE’s bespoke courses allow working adults to design a personalised degree program to suit their specific needs.
UNE is internationally recognised for contributions to applied animal genetics and breeding, agriculture, law, social sciences, and health and medicine in a regional context. The UNE PhD (Innovation) program embeds practical research projects in industries and communities.
