What you will need

To apply, you will need to have the original or certified documents listed below. Your application will be processed only when we have received these documents.

  • academic transcript
  • completion certificate
  • passport
  • CV/resume
  • letters of work experience

Make sure you attach the necessary documentation to your application. The University will only accept scanned coloured originals or certified copies of original documents. You can have your copies of original documents certified by one of the following:

Certified documents must include an unmovable stamp, a signature, and the date of certification.

If your qualifications were obtained under a former name, please attach certified evidence of your change of name documents. Certified translations must accompany documents that are not in English.

Please send your International Application form and scanned coloured original or certified documents to ia@newcastle.edu.au

If you are unable to send the application via email you can work with your Education Agent or send to the International Admissions address noted in the paper-based section.

You must comply with the level of English proficiency for the program you are applying for.

When we receive and process your application, we will send you an email with your student number. Please include this number in all communication with the University of Newcastle.

We will send you a second email with a username and password that will allow you to login to our system and see the status of your application.

If your application is successful, we will send you a letter of offer. The letter of offer will include your program of study, program fees, start date and any conditions you must meet before accepting your offer.

If your application is unsuccessful, we will send you a letter to inform you of that decision.

Accept your offer and pay the required deposit fees. You will find the acceptance of offer form at the end of your offer letter. If you have received a conditional offer, you should meet the conditions described before accepting your offer.

When the University receives your offer acceptance, we will send you a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) as evidence of your deposit payment. Your CoE will allow you to access streamlined student visa processing, which is faster than the usual visa process.
