ABOUT UNIVERSITY OF NEWCASTLE

Not to be confused with Newcastle University in northern England, the University of Newcastle is a leading Australian institution located in the Australian city of Newcastle, New South Wales.

Founded in 1965, the institution has expanded rapidly since its beginnings as a teacher-training college. Three of its main campuses are based within Newcastle city centre, but the institution also has branches in campuses in Callaghan, Ourimbah, Port Macquarie and Sydney. In 2007, the University of Newcastle opened its new institution in Singapore.

Teaching and research at the university is organised into five core faculties, covering business and law, education and arts, engineering and built environment, science, and health. Research is also a major aspect of the university’s core function, and University of Newcastle researchers have won awards for the global impact of their work.

The university library consists of several buildings split across the campuses. Sports are integral to university life at Newcastle, and students have access to tennis courts, six sports pitches and an Olympic-sized swimming pool. The facilities here are so good, they’re even used by professional sports teams including the National Rugby League and the national water polo team.

Students also come to the university for its bustling outdoor social life. The city has been voted as one of the most liveable cities in the world by the likes of Lonely Planet, and is renowned for its culture and access to long, golden beaches. Sydney is around two hours away by car or train.

The university boasts a long list of notable alumni, including politicians, performers, musicians and authors. Famous names include television presenter Scott Bevan, and Sandra Eades, Australia’s first Aboriginal medical practitioner to be awarded a doctorate of philosophy.
