Asia

Since the Colombo Plan saw the first scholars come to Newcastle in the 1960s and through to our many international students today, enduring and supportive relationships with our graduates living and working across Asia have seen the University's global footprint extend proudly across the region.

Our alumni across Asia enjoy a variety of opportunities to connect with fellow UoN graduates as well as with visiting University of Newcastle staff and students. 

Connect with a global UoN alumni network chapter, group or regional contact in your area. If there isn't current activity in your location please register your interest by emailing alumni@newcastle.edu.au
