About University: The University of Newcastle, established in 1965, and offers over 150 undergraduate and graduate courses, delivered via five Faculties - Business and Law; Education and Arts; Engineering and Built Environment; Health; and Science and Information Technology. The University is an exceptional achiever in research with an international reputation for expertise in innovative approaches to teaching and learning.

There are two main campuses, both of which have won national awards for architecture and sympathetic environmental management. The larger campus at Callaghan lies about 12 kilometres from the Centre of Newcastle on a beautiful natural bushland site, and this is where the great majority of Newcastle students study. The other main campus is at Ourimbah on the Central Coast, about half way between Newcastle and Sydney. It is part of an innovative joint venture between the University, the Hunter Institute (TAFE NSW) and the Central Coast Community College.

Newcastle also has a significant presence on two sites within the Newcastle C.B.D. The School of Music and Conservatorium are located in the Civic Theatre precinct, while the School of Law, Legal Centre, and Graduate School of Business are located in University House, a landmark art-deco sandstone building directly opposite Civic Park. It is an ideal location for many students who study part-time and who work close by. And although the University's medical and nursing programs are based on the Callaghan campus, they also operate out of major clinical, teaching, and research facilities at several hospitals and health centres in the Hunter and Central Coast regions.
