Student experience programs
Join our global community
Join our University community of over 35,000 students from over 105 countries. Engage with Australian and other international students and the local community to enhance your Australian experience and build strong relationships.
It takes longer than one day to settle in to a new country and learning environment. That’s why we run an ongoing orientation program that involves a range of activities to ensure you settle in to life in Australia.
Build your English skills outside the classroom by attending a:
- Pronunciation Class
- Speed Conversation Class
- Group or individual Speech Pathology session
- Campus Conversations
Meet local Australian students and make friends through regular out-of-class activities at local Newcastle attractions, and see why Newcastle has been named as a Global Smart City.

What NEAS says about our endorsed Premium Product,
the Student Experience Passport:
“The Student Experience Passport, designed as part of the University’s Language Centre’s Student Experience program, breaks down barriers and opens opportunities for international students to engage in meaningful connections with the community. The small passport-style booklet features a range of extra-curricular activities that students can work through to familiarise themselves with a new campus and city, foster friendships and improve their English”
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.
