We will establish three partnered institutes that deliver demonstrable improvements in our research engagement, our education programs, our student experience, and promote the stature of the University on a global stage.


We will see continued growth in the number of students participating in inbound and outbound mobility opportunities in the Asia Pacific Region, making us a leader in student mobility, measured as a proportion of our student cohort.


We will see an increase in uptake of engagement opportunities for alumni that enable them to contribute to our University's outcomes, including mentoring and Work Integrated Learning opportunities, research and engagement partnerships, and philanthropic support.


We will diversify our student cohort and experience by growing the number of students from Asia and the Pacific and reach the national average for international student commencements.

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.
