    Testimonial from Real-World Experiences, student at University of Newcastle, Australia

    "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

    Testimonial from Pathways to University, student at University of Newcastle, Australia

    "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.”

    Testimonial from Ways of Teaching, student at University of Newcastle, Australia

    "Studying Medicine at the University of Newcastle has helped me prepare for the real-world."

    I transferred from the International Medical University in Malaysia half way through my Bachelor of Medicine degree. I’m proud to have completed my degree and really enjoyed my time at the University of Newcastle.

    The University’s medicine program is world-class. The program includes several different clinical placements that helped prepare me for the real-world. I’ve had the opportunity to learn and work at various general practitioners, the John Hunter Hospital, the Singleton District Hospital, and the Mater Hospital. I’ve also been able to travel to different places in Australia to learn new things, including a nursing home in Adelaide.

    I’ve graduated with the medical expertise and skills to help maintain and promote individual and community health around the world. I was offered a job at Tamworth Rural Referral Hospital.”
