The University of Newcastle is internationally renowned and among the top ten research universities in Australia . University of Newcastle has been at the forefront in the development of Problem-Based Learning (PBL), both in Australia and internationally. PBL enables students to learn while solving problems that they are likely to come across in their professional lives. Used mainly in the disciplines of Architecture, Building, Health Sciences, and Medicine, PBL has been a marked success with students and with employers, who find that graduates tend to operate in the "real world" much more quickly and more efficiently than graduates who have experienced more traditional approaches to learning.

The University of Newcastle offers students the perfect combination of lifestyle and learning. Set in superb bushland and close to waterways, forests and spectacular surf beaches, the University's setting and its relaxed atmosphere combine to offer an excellent environment for academic pursuits and personal development.
