Newcastle International College (NIC)
NIC is your pathway to a degree at the University of Newcastle. The Foundation Program (FP) leads to over 100 undergraduate degrees, including Medicine. NIC Diploma programs are equivalent to the first year of a Bachelor's degree and graduates of the Diploma enter Year 2 of the degree program.
If you are not eligible for direct entry to the University of Newcastle, you could still be eligible for an NIC pathway course leading to your chosen degree. Letters of Offer are packaged with both the NIC and UoN program, so you only need to make one application and your student visa, if approved, will allow you to study both courses.
- Fast-track degree pathway into one of Australia's best universities
- Complete your bachelor's degree in 2 years, 8 months (instead of 3 years)
- Small class sizes mean more personal attention from lecturers
