Graduates from the University of Newcastle are rated among the best in the world because our engaged learning practices ensure their education takes place both in and out of the classroom. More than 90 per cent of our undergraduate degrees offer the opportunity for students to participate in a work placement.
We strive to deliver degrees that inspire innovation. From engineering to social work, we have some of the world's best teachers and researchers at the helm of our world-class programs.
The 2012 Australian Graduate Survey (AGS) revealed that 82 per cent of all our graduates believe they are sufficiently equipped with the right skills for the job.
Every year, many of our students are recognised for their outstanding performance. In 2013, Civil Engineering PhD student Glen Burton won a Prime Minister's Australia Asia Award for his work on the development of fundamental soil mechanics principles.
