University of Newcastle

University of Newcastle

We take education outside the classroom and beyond textbooks. Our strong partnerships with local and global organisations ensure everything you study is shaped by the real world. Whether you study at our Newcastle (Callaghan), Newcastle City, or Central Coast (Ourimbah and Gosford) campus, access to internships, work experience and industry connections are embedded in all our degrees.

When it comes to lifestyle, you can’t go wrong. Think stunning beaches, public art, a buzzing music scene, chilled-out cafes, eclectic markets, micro-breweries and small bars. The people are friendly, and the coffee culture is taken seriously. If sports are your thing, make sure you experience the excitement of an A-League or NRL game.

Maybe you’re keen to take your studies around the world? With more than 100 partner universities spanning all major continents, we’ve got you covered.

Or, if you’re not quite sure whether attending university is possible for you – we hear you. Helping people access higher education is in our DNA.

We’re proud to be the largest provider of pathway programs in Australia. So, if you didn’t quite get the marks you expected, or financial stress is holding you back, get in touch with us.

We also offer hundreds of scholarships to support our Indigenous students, students with educational or financial disadvantages, elite athletes, students who have achieved academic excellence and many more.

Need a place to stay? Take advantage of our award-winning student accommodation. Living on-campus is ideal if you’re looking to meet new friends, get involved with social activities and have access to countless amenities.

So, take the leap. Choose a university that has leading-edge teaching spaces, embraces new technologies and pushes boundaries. That connects you with industry and helps you stand out in the crowd. Graduate ready to make an impact.
