The University of Newcastle is international in its outlook. With more than 6,800 international students studying in Australia and overseas, Newcastle continues to expand its internationalisation strategy.
Internationalising the curriculum
The University's curriculum is continually reviewed to ensure it reflects global knowledge and our international positioning. Our approach to teaching and learning is to help our students contextualise their academic experience and their future careers in a global environment.
Increasing the cultural competency of staff and students
A range of programs and opportunities have been implemented to provide an international perspective for our staff and students. One example is iLEAD, the University's International Leadership Experience and Development Program. Students have the opportunity to gain international experience and leadership skills through practical and academic exercises.
Building research and teaching relationships with overseas institutions
The University has a comprehensive engagement strategy in place with a number of key universities throughout the world, and this is producing significant opportunities for staff and students.
Recruiting and supporting international students
The University has more than 6,800 international students from 111 countries enrolled in our programs in Australia, outside Australia and online, including over 1,800 students enrolled at our Singapore campus. We host a comprehensive range of support programs to ensure our international students’ experience at Newcastle is academically, culturally and socially rewarding.
