Saudi Arabia Alumni Launch 

With nearly 300 graduates living in Saudi Arabia, the Alumni Relations team has established the nation's very first UON Alumni group, based in Riyadh. 

We are excited to invite you to the launch of the group, led by Dr William Lilley, PhD graduate of UON and an Energy Strategist at Saudi Aramco.

Hosted by the University of Newcastle and the Australian Embassy in Riyadh, this is the perfect opportunity for you to reconnect and reminisce with alumni. Also, as this event will be held in our 50th year, come help us celebrate UON's past, present and future!
