"Engineering degrees at the University of Newcastle are very much focused on providing life-long, real-world, professional skills that will set me up for my future career."
On campus I can participate in industry guest lectures and live projects sponsored by business. I also get exposure to real-world challenges and critical engineering applications with 12-weeks of industrial experience.
Newcastle is one of only three universities in Australia in the Global E³ which gives me learning opportunities with the best universities all over the world. Universities like Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University which ranks in the top 10 in the world.
I like that engineering is such a broad field and I could end up working not only designing buildings, but also transport systems and tunnels. I feel like studying at the University of Newcastle is giving me the best possible start.”

Pathways to University
"The University of Newcastle's English Language Centre was the perfect platform for me to start studying in Australia."
I decided to come to the University of Newcastle as I really wanted to study a quality psychology degree in Australia. Before starting the degree, I attended the University’s English Language Centre where I undertook an English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS).
This course really helped me develop my English skills and prepare me for studying full-time.
I really liked how my English teachers had a passion for helping each student. They provided a friendly and supportive atmosphere. Many of the teachers had even taught in a variety of Asian countries.
I’m looking forward to finishing my four-year degree in Newcastle as university life here is serene and enjoyable.”
