The University of Newcastle will release 901 offers for mid-year enrolment today (Friday) at 9am.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Services), Dr Sue Gould, said the University of Newcastle was releasing the second largest number of offers in NSW.
"Data from the Australian Graduate Survey shows that 76 per cent of the University's bachelor degree graduates under 25 typically find jobs within four months of finishing their degree.*
"Students are increasingly turning to the University of Newcastle's mid-year enrolments to start their studies. Mid-year entry means they do not have to wait until next year to commence studying and kick start their career."
The most popular degree programs are the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Construction Management (Building).
