The University of Newcastle has a proud history of achievement and we celebrate our successes as individuals and as an institution.

In 50 years, our outstanding educators have achieved a long list of accolades and our world-class researchers are recognised for their contribution to many fields of inquiry.

Our remarkable students continue to impress with stories of success both at home and on the world stage.

Together and as individuals, we are among the world's best.

Among the world's best

The University of Newcastle is a research-intensive institution with an exceptional record of achievement.

We are ranked among the top 1% of the world's universities, according to the QS World University Rankings 2017/18.

Our Architecture/Built Environment discipline has ranked in the world’s top 50, for the third consecutive year, in the 2017 QS World University Rankings by Subject list. Debuting in this year’s prestigious global list, Engineering – Mineral and Mining has ranked at 30 in the world.

The University has six subjects ranked in the world’s top 100 and an overall total of 13 subjects ranked in the world’s top 200.

Our performance on the world stage continues to improve as we move closer to realising our vision of being global leaders in each of our spheres of achievement - equity, education and research.

Outstanding student experience

We work hard to ensure that the UON student experience allows our students to excel. In 2015, the Australian Graduate Survey returned a satisfaction rating of 85 per cent, a one per cent improvement on our 2013 rating.

We continue to rank in the top quartile of all Australian universities for quality teaching thanks to ongoing improvement in teacher satisfaction on the survey's Good Teaching Scale.

But surveys are not the be all and end all. The success of our students is a far more important measure of the quality UON experience.
