Notes about fees for this course
Fees for international students vary depending on which courses you take to complete your program of study.
Your fees need to be paid to the University in full by their due date, and you can view and pay the fees by logging into myHub through myUON.
If you are on a student visa and experiencing genuine and unexpected financial hardship, you may be eligible for a payment plan, which would allow you to pay the balance of your fees in monthly instalments with the full amount due to be paid prior to the end of the term of study. Applications for payment plans must be submitted online before census.
Credit for previous study
Students who have completed university-level courses at other institutions may receive credit for that coursework at the University of Newcastle. These credit transfers could help you complete your degree earlier or study new subjects rather than repeat prior learning.
Most often, we award credit to students who have completed Diploma programs or part of a Bachelor degree. Credit transfer and Pathways provides more information on applying for credit.
What if I do not meet the language or academic requirements for entry?
For international students who do not meet either the language or academic requirements for entry into an undergraduate program, a range of pathway courses are available.
The University of Newcastle Language Centre is an award-winning leader in teaching English language (ELICOS). With locations in both Newcastle and Sydney, students are offered 25 hours of class time per week, and can take part in an incredible student experience program that provides cultural experience alongside daily and academic language skills.
Newcastle International College (NIC) offers a fully-accredited pathway to UON degrees if you do not have the academic requirements for direct entry, or would prefer to study the first year of your undergraduate degree in an environment especially designed for international students.
Admission to our undergraduate degree programs usually requires successful completion of a senior secondary school qualification similar to the Higher School Certificate (HSC), the highest educational award in New South Wales schools.
