The challenges ahead

By the time the University of Newcastle turns 60 years old in 2025, the global higher education landscape will be transformed.

More universities will be established across the world as governments invest in building knowledge-based economies, and the emergence of a burgeoning middle class in Asia increases demand for higher education opportunities. Competition will be intense internationally for talented academic and professional staff and students, and new technologies will continue to redefine the teaching and learning experience in exciting ways. In this new world, partnerships will be the key to success and to addressing complex global challenges.
