Support while you are overseas
While overseas, you can still access UON services such as counselling, Campus Care, Chaplaincy, Sexual assault, harassment and crisis support.
If you are concerned about inappropriate, concerning or threatening behaviour while travelling, there are a number of support avenues you can contact:
- Local Authorities
- International SOS
- Campus Care at UON - provides information, advice and support – particularly in complex and sensitive situations
If you need any assistance with health, counselling and wellbeing while studying overseas, we recommend you contact the host university in the first instance. You also have access to this support from the University of Newcastle while overseas.
Extending your time on a Semester Exchange Program
If you are currently overseas and you wish to extend your exchange program, you need to meet the basic criteria:
- Your overall total time at the overseas institution will not be greater than two semesters
- You are not graduating in your program during the period of your exchange.
If you fulfil the above, please complete an application at the Global Experience Portal
