Since inception as Australia's first regional university, UNE has demonstrated a willingness to break the mould in pursuit of its mission to help people from all walks of life adapt to an ever-changing world.
UNE has been awarded the maximum 5 stars for overall student experience for the past 14 years; a feat unmatched by any Australian public university. UNE is now the number one rated university in NSW for teaching quality and student support.
UNE offers a rich on-campus experience for students from Australia and more than 75 nations. Residential colleges are centrepieces of this experience and provide options from traditional, catered colleges to self-catered apartment-style living.
UNE pioneered distance education in the 1950s and now offers Australia's most flexible educational experience to more than 20,000 online students, who receive 24/7 online tutor support and back-up from study centres across regional NSW.
Courses cover arts, humanities, education, health, economics, business, law, medicine, social and behavioural sciences and the natural, rural and environmental sciences. UNE has now introduced short bespoke courses that allow working adults to mix and match units from across different degrees to suit their needs.
UNE research is world class with 50 per cent of research fields rated above or well above world standard. UNE works across agriculture, environmental science, mathematics, psychology, medical and health and sport sciences and many others to solve tomorrow's problems today.
