Cultural diversity and belonging

We are stronger when our differences are viewed as opportunities to learn and grow.

With more than 100 countries represented in our student population, we value and celebrate diversity on our campuses.

Regardless of beliefs, language spoken, religion or cultural background, our vision is for all staff and students to feel they belong here and are empowered to achieve their full potential.

We recognise that cultivating a collaborative mindset where a range of perspectives, disciplines and expertise is respected and given a seat at the table is essential to shaping our values-based culture.

The University of Newcastle offers a range of support for international students. There are more than 100 student-run groups that you can be part of, including sporting, academic, social, cultural, and faith-based groups.

UON Global, our dedicated international student team, is always available to help, no matter where you are in your journey.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
