Australia: University of Newcastle, Newcastle
The University of Newcastle is located in an area that combines a five hundred acre natural landscape with the conveniences of Newcastle City. The city of Newcastle boasts wonderful beaches, a low cost of living, a very favorable climate, and a casual lifestyle (and it is close to Sydney, the capital of New South Wales). Established in 1965, the University of Newcastle attracts students and staff of the highest caliber. The University has two campuses: Callaghan (the largest campus), in Newcastle, and Central Coast, at Ourimbah (halfway between Newcastle and Sydney). Today more than nineteen thousand students can choose from 150 undergraduate and postgraduate courses offered by eleven faculties. Students choose from the full range of courses in architecture, art and design, arts and social science, economics, education, music, nursing and science, and mathematics.
Situated on a breathtaking stretch of Australia's coastline, the University of Newcastle is located to the northeast of Sydney, at the mouth of the Hunter River.
The College Consortium for International Studies (CCIS), a partnership of colleges and universities—two and four year, large and small, public and private, domestic and foreign—encompasses the broad spectrum of international higher education. CCIS members sponsor a variety of programs, notably study abroad programs and professional development seminars for faculty and administrators, which are designed to enhance international/intercultural perspectives within the academic community.
