Initiatives

Key initiatives

Asia Pacific partnerships

We will forge mutually beneficial partnerships in the Asia Pacific Region to support collaborations, international student recruitment, transnational education programs, staff and student exchange, and both outbound and inbound student mobility. These partnerships will enhance the University's research strengths, expand access to international research funding schemes, increase impact and entrepreneurship opportunities, and build reputation.

We will establish joint institutes with partner institutions in the Asia Pacific Region to address complex global issues and to drive the activities of our partnerships.

Globally engaged education

We will embrace a global focus in all learning, ensuring curriculum and programs are internationally relevant, attractive and flexible, and contribute to making our graduates life-ready.

Empowered and connected

We will strengthen connections with alumni, recognising the significance of their lifelong relationship with the University. We will take opportunities to use our outstanding alumni and staff to assist with student recruitment, marketing, industry introductions and engagement, government liaison in offshore locations, running lectures, mentoring start-ups, student outbound and inbound mobility and Work Integrated Learning opportunities.

Our Asia Pacific Hubs: Sydney and Singapore

We will maximise the potential that our activities in the gateway cities of Sydney and Singapore bring in enhancing student experience, connecting students and researchers with business and industry and building our global presence and reputation.

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.
