A message from The University of Newcastle

No matter the degree, both undergraduate and postgraduate courses at the University of Newcastle Australia (UON) provide students with practical, real-world experience that is highly sought after by all employers. UON’s degrees are recognised both nationally and internationally, providing a unique mix of theory, with experience in a practical setting and links with industry.

UON is currently ranked in the top three per cent of universities globally by both the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, and is ranked in the THE Top 100 Most International Universities. 

We have a sector-leading reputation for supporting students from diverse backgrounds to access higher education and achieve great outcomes. Our degrees are structured to ensure that our graduates are globally competitive and career-ready. Approximately 95 per cent of our undergraduate programs include work-integrated and experiential learning. This approach has been well received by our students, who voted us in the top ten of Australia’s universities for quality teaching, graduate satisfaction and for developing skills valued by employers.

UON’s face-to-face learning environment is enhanced by state-of-the-art facilities and technology, including high-tech laboratories and digitally connected information hubs.

As a regional research-intensive university, we have established strong partnerships with government and industry to drive innovation across areas of national and global significance. Our flagship research institutes, the Newcastle Institute for Energy and Resources (NIER) and the Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI) work with partners to deliver cross-disciplinary research translated into word-class innovation.

Our three main campuses are located on the beautiful New South Wales coast – at Newcastle, the Central Coast and Port Macquarie – and our presences in Singapore and Sydney are growing rapidly. With over 40,000 students, UON’s learning community is vibrant and dynamic, offering students and researchers a world-class academic experience and a diverse professional, cultural and social learning environment.
