University of New England (UNE)
Over half a century ago, UNE was Australia's first university based outside a capital city. Since then the University has built significant strength and expertise in a range of fields and has a strong rural standing in delivering health and science programs.
UNE's academic staff have well-earned international reputations for cutting edge, high impact research and the University attracts top postgraduate students from around the world.
UNE's residential college system is one of the most extensive in Australia, with lots of cultural, sporting and social activities, as well as academic support, to help you succeed. Having a vibrant living and learning lifestyle and a sense of belonging in a community, College residents get the most out of their UNE experience, usually making good friends for life with their fellow residents.
The School of Rural Medicine was established as a response to the need to address rural health workforce issues. UNE students' medical experience will include a range of settings but will offer students the opportunity for greater exposure to rural medical practice. The cohort size and brand new state-of-the-art teaching facilities at UNE, as well as the great atmosphere among students and staff, are just some of the highlights current medical students enjoy.
The campus is situated on 74 hectares of heritage parklands, overlooking the beautiful city of Armidale in the northern tablelands of NSW.
