Beyond graduation

Or you may choose to stay on and further your education through one of our many postgraduate study programs.

From the moment you graduate, you’ll become part of our outstanding network of over 143,000 University of Newcastle alumni around the world.

The University of Newcastle is built on the strength and generosity of our global community, and as an alumnus, you’ll have access to lifelong benefits, services and networking opportunities.

One of the best ways you can help the University continue to improve is by completing the graduate outcomes survey (GOS).

Sent from the Social Research Centre, the GOS is a national census of all newly qualified graduates that helps us understand the quality of your study experience.

Have you got the skills to give you the right start in your long-term career? Do your skills match the needs of the Australian workforce? Participating in the GOS will help the University (and the Australian higher education sector) plan for the future and make improvements to higher education.

Look out for your copy after your graduation ceremony (by email) in May or November.

Postgraduate study is a great way to get a head start in the workforce, earn a promotion in your current job or make a career change.

Whatever your motivation, the University offers hundreds of postgraduate courses, as well as the opportunity to earn your PhD or Research Masters degree.

Graduation may actually be a brand new beginning for you at the University.
