Welcome to UON Singapore – a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of Newcastle, Australia. Ranked among the top 1% of the world's universities, according to the QS World University Rankings 2017/18, the University is a world-class institution and produces first class graduates.

Established by the University of Newcastle in 2006, UON Singapore is the international footprint of the University in the Southeast Asian region. We have produced more than 4,700 graduates from 37 to 45 countries thus far, and currently boast over 1,000 students who enrolled in a variety of programs in both full-time and part-time modes with prolific partner institutions in Singapore.

UON Singapore continues to undertake initiatives and deploy resources to enhance teaching and learning excellence, enrich student experience, and increase student engagement to produce world class graduates. Our programs ensure that our graduates possess the right skills, knowledge, competencies, and attitude to meet and exceed stakeholders' expectations in an increasingly globalised world.

In Singapore, we continue to play a pivotal role in leveraging the University's excellence in research and innovation by developing mutually beneficial relationships and partnerships with industry, public and private institutions, and the wider community.

We wish you only the best for your journey with us and warmly welcome you to the University of Newcastle family. We look forward to continuing to bring the very best the University has to offer to Singapore.
