Study abroad and exchange
The University of Newcastle regularly hosts students from overseas for semester or short term study experiences and supports international students to study abroad as part of their education through numerous exchange partnerships we have with universities around the world.
At the University of Newcastle, you will meet not only Aussies, but also students from around the world. From a total student population of over 35,000, around 7,500 students have come to us from over 100 countries outside Australia. You can meet people from every continent and walk of life.
Newcastle itself is one of the most liveable cities in the world. Its thriving harbour is the economic hub of Newcastle and the Hunter Valley region. In addition to a spectacular coastline and surf beaches, Newcastle has excellent cafes and restaurants, bars and pubs, boutique shopping and a diverse arts scene.
Newcastle is also perfect for students wishing to spend their free time travelling to Australia's other must-see destinations. It's around two hours from Sydney, one hour from the Hunter Valley vineyards, and just off the main coastal highway for exploring Australia's many picturesque seaside towns.
