Health, safety and wellbeing

Your health and safety are most important to us, because they allow you to study, learn, and enjoy life at the University of Newcastle. 


You can live a healthy life at the University of Newcastle by participating in our many sport and social activities, enjoying fresh food on campus and taking care in the sun and water. We also have medical centres with university doctors on each campus, and are located near hospitals that can handle special illnesses and emergencies. As an international student in Australia, you must have health insurance, also called health cover, which will lower the costs of medical services.
