The University of Newcastle

The University of Newcastle (UON) continues to build its global reputation for being one of the world's most prestigious universities. In 50 years, our outstanding educators have achieved a long list of accolades and our world-class researchers are recognised internationally for their contribution to many fields of inquiry. Our remarkable students continue to impress with stories of success within the region and on the national and world stage.

Our international standing also comes through innovative approaches to teaching and learning. Over 35,000 students study with us – including 7,500 international students from 80 countries – at campuses in Newcastle, Ourimbah, Port Macquarie, Sydney and Singapore.

Our online postgraduate courses are delivered to a further 4000 students in locations all around the world.
