Over our history of more than 40 years, the University of Newcastle has been characterised as a university of distinction. Our reputation is shaped by internationally recognised strength in research and an enduring commitment to quality teaching and learning, environmental sustainability, and equity and diversity.
A determined campaign by Hunter residents was the driving force behind the creation of the University. In the early 1950s, Newcastle University College was established on a technical college site at Tighes Hill under the authority of the then University of Technology New South Wales (now the University of New South Wales). Just five full-time students were enrolled when classes began and study concentrated on science, mathematics and engineering.
Over the next 10 years, the growth in student numbers and the community's desire for a university to call its own led to the University becoming an autonomous institution. Today some 30,000 students are enrolled in programs across five faculties. Over 85 undergraduate programs are on offer and the range of postgraduate study options is continually growing.
The University has matured from a locally-focused institution to one that is global in its outlook. Our graduates are sought-after by employers at home and overseas. Working with communities locally and internationally, the University strives to achieve – creating opportunities, delivering results and raising the bar across every field.
A recent audit by the Australian Universities Quality Agency found the University to be a vibrant and well-managed institution. The University’s energy management is in the top tier in the sector and we are one of the lowest consumers of energy of all Australian universities.
The University’s Australian campuses are located at Callaghan – 12 kilometres from the Newcastle City Centre; in a city precinct in the Newcastle CBD; on the Central Coast halfway between Sydney and Newcastle; and at Port Macquarie on the New South Wales Mid-North Coast, three hours drive north of Newcastle. The University also has a campus in Singapore.
The University of Newcastle is a progressive, dynamic institution recognised for research achievement, teaching innovation and access to higher education for disadvantaged groups. Our reputation as a higher education institution of distinction is built on the achievements of many members of the University's community.The University of Newcastle is a member of Innovative Research Universities Australia (IRU Australia).
Newcastle is Australia's second oldest city (after Sydney), is New South Wales' second largest, and the sixth largest in Australia. Lieutenant John Shortland found a rich seam of coal while pursuing escaped convicts in the area in 1791. The area was settled originally as a mining venture and named Coal River. Abandoned in 1802, the settlement resumed two years later under Lieutenant Charles Menzies with the new name of Newcastle.
The University has an international reputation for expertise in innovative approaches to teaching and learning. Problem-based learning, pioneered by Newcastle some 25 years ago, forms the core of our programs in medicine, engineering, architecture, construction management, nursing and law. Newcastle was one of the first Australian universities to introduce the Master of Business Administration as well as the first integrated Professional Program for Law students.
There are two main campuses, both of which have won national awards for architecture and sympathetic environmental management. The larger campus at Callaghan lies about 12 kilometres from the centre of Newcastle on a 140 hectare natural bushland site, and this is where the great majority of our students study. The other main campus is at Ourimbah on the Central Coast, about half way between Newcastle and Sydney. It is part of an innovative joint venture between the University, the Hunter Institute (TAFE NSW) and the Central Coast Community College.
