If you wish to study face-to-face at one of the University of Newcastle campuses, please make sure that you review the University Admissions Centre application closing dates for your program.
If you are applying directly to GradSchool to study online (or a mix of online and face-to-face), please adhere to the application closing dates listed below. Applications received after these dates will be considered for the next available intake:
|Trimester 1 2013 – 18 January 2013||Semester 1 2013 – 15 February 2013|
|Trimester 2 2013 – 10 May 2013||Semester 2 2013 – 12 July 2013|
|Trimester 3 2013 – 23 August 2013|
The application process varies according to the program; the study mode: face-to-face, online or a combination of both; and whether you are a domestic or international student.
Most applications are made to either the Universities Admission Centre, the University of Newcastle International Office, or directly using the GradSchool online application form. Certain specialist programs may have extra application requirements, which will be listed on the detailed program information page.
If you are also applying for credit please refer to our credit and exemptions section for further information and instructions.
International students who wish to study online from their home country can apply online. See the 'before you get starter' section below. Those wishing to study face-to-face or a combination of both should visit the International Admissions page.
