Why Study at UoN
There are a large number of options to study abroad in Australia, here are just a few reasons why you should study abroad at the University of Newcastle (UoN) through UW-Platteville Education Abroad:
International perspective in an Australian setting
With more than 7,800 international students from over 80 different countries worldwide, students are exposed not only to Australian culture through classes and cocurricular activities, but also to a variety of cultures from around the world.
A world class research institution
With renowned research in engineering, energy, environment, health, and science, UoN ranks in the top 10 Australian universities for high quality research output. As a result, students are ensured quality and cutting-edge instruction in fields of study university-wide.
Onsite support and international student services
Students studying abroad through UW-Platteville Education Abroad can rest assured knowing that they have an On-Site Coordinator in Newcastle who does everything from securing accommodation to organizing excursions and is there to assist with any matters along the way. In addition, the UoN International Student Support Team provides a range of support services to all international students.
Safe, comfortable, and accessible campus and city
With a population of 155,000 and easy access by bus and train, Newcastle is large enough to keep students busy on the weekends but small enough to run into friends on the street. The relaxed atmosphere on campus provides a comfortable place to study while enjoying the peaceful natural bushland site.
Newcastle was ranked ninth in Lonely Planet’s top ten cities in the world in 2011 thanks to its coastal lifestyle and landscape, cultural and historical sites, and exciting events and festivals. From student organizations and activities on campus, surfing to whale watching on the Newcastle beaches, and all that Sydney has to offer just two hours away, the experiences are endless.
A semester abroad can be more expensive than a semester in the United States, so UW-Platteville Education Abroad strives to keep costs as low as possible with this in mind. By living like a local student and taking advantage of the On-Site Coordinator's extensive expertise, UW-Platteville Education Abroad and UoN are able to offer one of the most affordable education abroad programs in Australia.
