Students at Beach 

The University of Newcastle is a comprehensive, international university and one of Australia's leading research institutions. It operates on two main campuses in Newcastle (Callaghan campus) and the Central Coast (Ourimbah campus). As an international student at UON, you will choose from a wide variety of courses and become immersed in our diverse community and beautiful natural setting.

Here you will meet not only Aussies, but also students from around the world. From a total student population of over 35,000, around 7,500 students have come to us from over 100 countries outside Australia. You can meet people from every continent and walk of life – and we'll help you do it. Our UON international team is dedicated to supporting you during your time at the university. 

Newcastle itself is one of the most livable cities in the world. Its thriving harbor is the economic hub of Newcastle and the Hunter Valley region. In addition to a spectacular coastline and surf beaches, Newcastle has excellent cafes and restaurants, bars and pubs, boutique shopping and a diverse arts scene.

Newcastle is also perfect for students wishing to spend their free time travelling to Australia's other must-see destinations. It's around two hours from Sydney, one hour from the Hunter Valley Vineyards, and just off the main coastal highway for exploring Australia's many picturesque seaside towns.
